The President, in his address at the opening of the present session,
referred in a few apt and sympathetic words to the loss we had sustained
in the death, of our distinguished member, Dr. Hancock. But
he and others have thought that in this society, of which Hancock
was the founder, some fuller memorial notice—some detailed account
of his life and labours ought to be given, and they expressed a wish
that I, as one of his oldest and most intimate friends, should undertake
the task of preparing it. This I have gladly done; I only
regret my inability to accomplish it in a manner worthy of the man
we desire to honour. I will at least try to state accurately the main
facts of his personal history, to recall some of his most important
labours, and to give the impression of his character which our long
and familiar intercourse has left upon my mind.
