William and Maymie Kimes Annotation

Under the heading "Should Auld Acquaintance Be Forgot and Never Brought To Mind. Memory of Burns Is Fittingly Honored By Local Scots ... " Muir's entire speech is printed. Since Muir was the featured speaker and could not be present for this commemorative evening, he sent a typescript of his speech to be read. "It is surely a fine thing to stop now and then in the throng of our common everyday work to contemplate the works and ways of God's great men, sent down from time to time to guide and bless mankind . . . . Throughout these last hundred and ten years thousands of good men have been telling God's love; but the man who has done most to warm human hearts and bring to light the Kinship of the world, is Burns, Robert Burns, the Scotsman."


The Pasadena Evening Star, Jan. 26, 1907
