Our townsman, Mr. O.N. Wardwell, entertained our citizens, Saturday evening last by a recital of his disquisition upon natural depravity. We judge from Mr. W's own statement, that he is emphatically a self-made man; and if so, much credit is due to him, as it is evident from this, his first attempt, at public speaking in this place that he has well improved his spare time. His style of oratory is natural, graceful, easy. Here is a noble example for our young men to copy after." -New Hampshire Sentinel 04 January 1872
