This speech was given at the dedication of a monument in Camden Maine to William Conway August 30, 1906.

The battleship Maine was there, see page 21, which is interesting because the sinking in 1898 of the first Battleship Maine set off the Spanish-American War. The second battleship Maine was in service 1902 - 1922 the new one has three smoke stacks rather than two.
