“If family papers are cherished, and claim respect in the home circle as memoirs of an unforgotten past, how much more ought to be prized, carefully garnered and preserved, the records of a whole people; that is, its public archives. . . . . A nation's history lies in its archives ; there alone can it be sought ; there alone rests the enduring evidence of its existence—the authentic certificate of its origin—its title deeds—the story of its achievements, good or bad.”
-SIR JAMES M. LEMOINE.
