Mr. Bird will give two prize«, to be known as the Alfred I> Bird and the Ellen Elisabeth Bird prizes, for tlie Licet average in, mat hematic* during the year. Judge Gmbh piesented to the school the original parchment deed of the ground upon «hieb Ihe school house stands, made August Oth, 1805, by John Dickinson, also the portrait* of John Dickinson, Judge Willard Hall, father of the free seliool system of Delaware, and photugraplut of I lie old achool house '«fore Ihe recent additions were made. Judge Grubb, in prescuting Ihe r; traits said he «tu, especially gratified join in this centennial celebration of the erection to this historic achoolhouse liecauae he »a* horn in Brandywine hundred and this wo* where be began hie education, when huf 5 ye Continuing, lie «aid, many former pupil* of the school have afterward attiuned success and distinction in various line#. One of these is Diaries D. Bird, a native of the hundred, who was the late mayor of Wilmington, also recalled another. William Dyde, president of the Clyoe Steamship Co, of New York. In fact Brandywine hundred lias not Ixsen wanting in pro ducing men of worth and distinction in after life. Speaking of mayors, John P. AUmoiid, a native of tlie hundred, was also mayor of Wilmington. Charles Gilpin, yeara ago mayor of Philndcl;ihia, and l idled Slates District Attorney a son of Edward Gilpin and Lydia Grubb, was also of the old Brandywine hun ched stock, as was also Edward W. Gil pin. one of Delaware s best and worthiest chief justices. Victor d.« Pont, a former president of the Union National Hank, Wilmington, and one of the best lawyers and most beloved citizen of bis day, was bom and bred in Brandywine hundred and his distinguished unde, the gallant Admiral du Pont, from his childhood to his death, waa a resident of the hundred. "Today," he continued, "our present governor, Preston Lea, was also a native of her soil, so you see our old hundred of Brandywine, ran walk erect and hold her head proudly among her sister hun dreds of the State," In referernce to the deed and framed portraits and photographs, presented by Judge tiruhh, he said: "This deed is Ihe original parchment indenture made and signed by John Dickerson, more than 100 years ago. This old deed I found some muni he ago among some pa tiers of my grandfather, James Grubb, Eng,, of Grubb's Landing, who waa one of the five trustees to whom John Dickerson conveyed t he ground for school purposes forever. This framed likeness of John Dickinson is taken from a rare portrait of him. John Dickinson waa one of tha most noted the period lionary War. «»me time, was governor of Delaware, f overnor of Pennsylvania, mendier of 'ongresa from IVlawnre and ex-officio, chief justiee of the High Court of Ap peal* of Pennsylvania." "Three Slates clamed him as a citizen, Maryland, «here he waa horn. Pennsyl vania, where he practiced law, and served her in the high positions mentioned, and Delaware, »here lie was reared from the age of eight year* and served as a d< legale in the Continental Congress, a signer of the Articles of the Confederation of Ihe Kedeial Constitution, as well us a mem. her of her constitutional convention in 1702, He diet! in Wilmington in 1X01 at hi* residence,which stood on the present •He of the Wilmington Institute Build ing at Eighth and Market streets. He «a» buried in the Friend»' burial ground, at Fourth and West streets. "Thin other framed |ioitrait is an excel lent likeness of Judge Willard Hall, who was born in Massachusetts in 17(50. and died in Wilmington in 1875. in his tl.ith year. He cams to Delaware in 1903, practiced law at Dover until 1823, when be was appointed United (Mates District Judge for the District of Delaware, by President Monroe, which office he lielii for 48 years until his resignation in 1871." Judge Grubb also referred to Ihe various other offices and poaifions of fruit which be had held in I Ma ware, and said: knew him while he waa eminent os an earnest Christian philanthropist, lawyer and judge, and with hi* New England training, ideas and methods, and a dis interested public spirit made an enduring impression upon Ihe institutions and people of hi* adopted Stale, he always remembered hy the people of Delaware as a framer of our first State free school act of 1829, and as the real founder of the public free school ay stem Delaware, Jo which he gave the best effort* of hi* youth, hi* prime and hi* old age Therefore.
