Notes
Content: Printed on border: "Erster Sprecher. 'The School which we now have formed here in Orchard Street, in accordance with our Charter, Gentlemen (drinks!), will show the enervated Americans what a miserable farce their System of Education is. Looking around this assembly of blooming, enlightened Young Men, I feel that German Education is now, as ever, the cradle of pure action, enobling sentiment, strong intellect, and manly courage, which acompanies the German wherever he goes, and commands the respect of every civilized nation on the face of the earth.' (Drinks -- immense applause!)" Written on mount: "Oct. 1, 1856"
Source note: Harper's weekly : a journal of civilization. (New York : Harper' s Weekly Co., 1857-1916).
