"Ladies and Gentlemen: I have known of Iowa City always as a college town, and as I have lived ever since I entered college in a college town, I appreciate the advantages which such towns offer. I have also known of your town because very early in my residence in Nebraska, it was my good fortune to speak from the same platform with your townsman, Judge Fairall, and we have maintained our acquaintance ever since." (Great cheering as the train started.)
