Scope and content

Regrets that he is 'no orator', like his 'uncle H.' [his wife's uncle Paul François Hubrecht?] and father. Expresses his gratitude for 'all that has been so kindly spoken', and he is sure also felt. Knew hardly any of those now present a year and a half ago, and since then has 'gained many new and delightful friends' - whom he is now repaying by 'taking away from them in the name of something greater even than friendship one whom they value and love'; promises that his wife will be happy in her new home, but 'her heart will remain Dutch', as his has already become in part.
