Cleveland's Golden Story
Download Full Text
"Instead of simply harboring institutions, as the river's mouth receives its ships, Cleveland is using them consciously and directly for the benefit of its citizens. If the writer of this narrative were asked to set forth Cleveland's great idea, he would employ but two words---Cleveland cares. Cleveland will grow richer but not scornful, more powerful but not ungentle, more illustrious but not forgetful. And for this ideal, Cleveland's image will ever dwell like a kindly light on the hearts of men."
