"The speaker at the dinner was Dr. Benjamin W. Labaree, Professor of History at Williams College. A distinguished historian of the American Revolution, Professor Labaree prepared the notable paper which is now reprinted for the general public. The happenings at Fort William and Mary in 1774 have been described in the past by at least seventeen different writers. But the Labaree paper is perhaps the most interesting of any presentation of this historic affair which has yet been made. Its incisive reasoning and its unusual viewpoint throw into bold relief the remarkable nature of the original event." - Foreword.
