"Thirty-three years have elapsed since Professor Thomas Jefferson Lamar rested from his labors, and yet his memory stays fresh in the hearts of those who were associated with him in those labors. This biographical sketch is prepared by his friends, to express it as the inscription that is found on the monument erected to the memory of Dr. Isaac Anderson puts it, not because they fear they will forget, but because they love to remember him who was once their companion; and also because they would have others know more about the memorable qualities and services of their departed friend."
