Excerpt from The City Hall, Providence: Corner-Stone Laid, June 24, 1875, Dedicated, November 14, 1878The city hall is the finest and most imposing public building in the city of Providence. The interest with which it has been visited, and the favorable criticisms which it has universally received from strangers and citizens alike, both as to its completeness of architectural design and its spacious and convenient accommodations for the transaction of municipal business, are the highest tribute to the efforts of the committee who secured the plans, the architect who designed, and the commissioners who supervised.To the commissioners, has already been awarded by the public admission of competent judges, the praise to which they are justly entitled for a service voluntarily rendered, that the city of Providence has "the best-built and best-appointed city hall in the United States"; and our citizens and tax-payers may well congratulate themselves that this building will stand an enduring monument to them and to all who in any manner have participated in its construction.Soon after the dedication in November, 1878, the city council passed a resolution thanking the Hon. Abraham Payne for the "eloquent and scholarly oration delivered by him at the dedication," and requesting the committee of arrangements to secure a copy thereof to be printed in such manner as the city council should direct.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
