In this old Kentucky home of oratory, where the very atmosphere is charged with eloquence, where every individual from the moment he is able to articulate until the time when he tenders his resignation to the Great Ruler, is able to speak with the rhetorical skill of a Demosthenes, where the cattle on a thousand hills give forth their lowing in sounds of melody, it would be an error on my part to attempt to speak to you in an off-hand manner. I have instead elected to present to you a few thoughts jotted down at my leisure regarding a subject which I trust will not prove uninteresting. The topic which I have selected is "The Needs and Rights of Old Age."
One that is not far removed from the middle milepost of life in discussing "The Needs and Rights of Old Age," can surely not be charged with indulgence
