Excerpt from The Teutonic Spirit: An Address Delivered on the Occasion of the Unveiling of a Statue to Rollo of Normandy, at Fargo, N. Dakota, July 12th, 1912
We have met here, in the very heart of the great North American continent, to note the significance of an epoch and a... n event that belong to another age and clime. Yet such is the ¿ux and ¿exibility of human action and experience that that epoch and event have become of significance to all the people of this land and nation.
Rollo, first a roving Viking, later the sedate ruler of a French province, achieved the great act of his life a thousand years ago. It seems to us mortals a long time; but on the great clock of human experience it' marks but a brief hour.
