A man can’t be hid. He may be a pedler in the mountains, but the world will find him out to make him a king of finance. He may be carrying cabbages from Long Island, when the world will demand that he shall run the railways of a continent. He may be a groceryman on the canal, when the country shall come to him and put him in his career of usefulness.
Dr. John Paxton—Sermon. He Could not be Hid. Aug. 25, 1889. Extract from TheSun. Aug. 26, 1889
