The retrospect of the first, ten years gives cause for grateful hope.. Like St. Paul at the Three Taverns, we thank God and take coinage. We are thankful anew for the munificence of the Founder, futile cautious yet far-reaching wisdom of the guardians of the foundation. We are thankful for the good men that have here wrought, some of whom are now no longer with us. And of these absent ones, we recall none today to a more grateful remembrance than the noble scholar, the Christian gentleman, Charles DUrban Morris, who brought to the service of this university, in the most important years of her existence, the best and manliest culture of England, a pure heart, a tender conscience, and an unselfish devotion to the welfare of his fel-low-men.

We are thankful that the high ideal here set at the beginning has not been lowered, and that the country and the community alike recognize the unique and powerful position of the university among American educational institutions. We take great courage, for the future, in the reflection that the university has attained this position, by coming into existence not through a creative fiat, but by a growth secure and sound, though swift without precedent.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
