Roosevelt in Vermont

 

Addresses Old Veterans in Vermont Eulogizing Civil War Veterans.

     Burlington, Vt., Sept. 5.—Vice President Roosevelt arrived this afternoon and was escorted to the residence of Con. [sic] Cannon, by troops E and H, of the Eleventh U. S. cavalry, of Fort Ethan Allen. This evening Roosevelt delivered an address at a meeting of the Vermont Officers’ Reunion society.
     In his speech Roosevelt paid a high tribute to the veterans of the civil war and in closing said:
     “We can never as a nation, afford to forget that back of our reason, our understanding, and our common sense, there must lie in full strength, the great fundamental passions which are not often needed, but which every truly great race must have as a well-spring of motive in time of need.”
