Wherever you may be, command your spirits to keep watch and ward over this humble place. By prayers, in tears, and with sacrifice it was brought into birth. Soon the silent artillery of time will have laid us low, and it will be for you to bear aloft and onward those standards soon to fall from our hands.
"Humbly do we beseech thee, O thou Great God in the Highest Heavens, that when the strings of the harps of our lives shall be muted; and when these wards and walls shall know our walk and way and hear our voices no more forever; that in humility we may have in this place, so taught you our children, no only in the science, but in the spiritual side of medicine, that thousands of afflicted ones who will enter in within these portals shall say as was said of our blest Lord and Savior in the long ago: Surely He hath borne our griefs and carried our sorrows:... Himself took our infirmities and bare our sicknesses."
