Excerpt from Burns Day in Detroit: Being a History of the Movement for a Burns Statue in Detroit and a Full Account of the Unveiling Ceremony Detroit has to be congratulated 011 now possessing a worthy monument to the Poet of Humanity, Robert Burns. This has been made possible by the splendid work of the Detroit Burns Club which culminated in the unveiling of the beautiful statue in Cass Park on the afternoon of Saturday, July 23rd last. I think it is a splendid idea to publish a souvenir book commemorative of the event, especially as this will make available to admirers of Burns throughout the world, the wonderful addresses which were delivered by the learned gentlemen who participated. The small part which it was my good fortune to perform at the unveiling exercises will ever be a source of pleasant memories to me. While congratulating the Burns Club on the splendid success achieved, I cannot but feel that the lion's share of the credit belongs to Mr. Edward Goodwillie, president of the Club. The indefatigable way in which he worked for this statue for a number of years entitles him to the highest credit. With all the discouragements with which he had to contend since the proposal to build the monument was started, many men would have been disheartened, but regardless of storm or sunshine he steadily persevered. Surely if Scotch tenacity was ever demonstrated more fully than in the work which Mr. Goodwillie did in connection with this statue, it would be difficult to find. It is always necessary to have one captain to a ship, and he certainly was the "man at the helm" in this case. May this book, as it goes on its journey, be a bond between Detroit lovers of Burns and the millions who worship at his shrine in all parts of the world.
