Classmates —

:

At the time of our graduation I prepared and caused to be printed

for your use my First Report, which was a collection of such facts in

our College course as were deemed to be of value or of interest to

you. In accordance with the intention then expressed, I now am happy

to greet you all with my Second Report, containing those events in

the history of each one of you which I have been able to learn, and

have deemed worthy of record. I trust that these outlines of the

histories of each other, during the last three years, collected for your

advantage, will be of interest to you.

In the preparation of this Report the endeavor has been to state as

briefly as possible the facts that are given, but to give every fact that

is known, even if some of them may seem of very little value or prac-

tical use. I have remembered that it is prepared for your sole use,

and have attempted to acquaint each one of you with the fortunes and

doings of the rest. To the eighty-four classmates who have answered

my circular, I return my sincere thanks for the assistance they have

given me. Under their names I have, in almost every case, placed all

they have told me, and am happy to hold myself responsible for any

errors or omissions which may appear in their histories. For the in-

sufficiency of the accounts of the rest, made up, as they necessarily

have been, from old letters, from reports of third parties, or from other

and various sources, the blame, if blame there be, must rest with those

members themselves.

In the list of our Class, printed at the beginning of the Report, all

those whose names are not in italics have actually graduated as mem-

bers of our Class. Of the remainder, five died during their College

course, six left to join the class of 1866, and the rest left during the

course for various reasons. This list is intended to show who are the

graduated members of the Class.

In the Report itself, I have deemed it most proper to place under

the first head, not only the graduates, but those who died during the

course, while yet connected with the Class. All the rest I have placed

together as " Temporary Members." Among these are all who have

at any time been connected with the Class, without regard to the

9 '-JCXjSjt^


length of their stay with us. Two we never saw, some stayed only a

few weeks or months, while others were with us nearly the whole four

years. I have it thought better to include all than to leave out a single

name in which any of us may be interested.

At the end of the Report there have been placed a summary of it,

and statistics of such facts as it has been deemed desirable to record.

Those who are given as taking the degrees of A. M. and M.D. in 1868

are such as have expressed an intention to take them then.

The Secretary of the Class of 1855, in his last Report, gave some

amusing statistics with reference to the average number of children

born to the Class each year, and to each member. I must confess that

I hesitate to follow in his footsteps, and to divide one baby into such

small fractions as an honest calculation would compel me to do.

I wish to remind you of a request made in the last Report,

and to impress upon each one of you that it is desirable and necessary,

for Class purposes and also for your advantage, to give me

information of your movements, changes in business, of place of resi-

dence, and especially of address, and of any event of interest in your

lives. I desire you to send to me any corrections you may perceive

necessary to these brief outlines contained in the following Report ;

and always I shall be pleased to hear from every one of you, and of

your prosperity, and to give you all the information concerning your

classmates that the position I hold may give me. It is hoped that all

will be so thoughtful that, in the Third Report, no one's name will appear

without a complete and definite account of his life.

If these pages, giving to you some recital of the doings of your

Classmates since graduation, shall in any way strengthen and renew

your interest in our Alma Mater, in our Class, and in each other's wel-

fare, and shall freshen your lives with pleasant recollections of College

days spent so happily among those " ancient architectural piles," or if

the memory of such as are gone — of Paine, of Russel, of Smith, or

of Wellraan — shall make your lives braver and better, this Report

will not have been prepared in vain.

Hoping to be able to greet many of you at our first Triennial Meet-

ing, I wish all good things to each one of you.

New York, No. 229 Broadway,

10 June, 1868.

1845.

He was born in Boston 10 May,

On leaving College at the

beginning of the second term of the


25

Sophomore year, he received a commission as Second Lieutenant

Twentieth Massachusetts Vohmteer Infantry, 23 April,

1863. He joined

his regiment at

Fredericksburg late on Satur-

day evening, 2 May, and early the next morning was engaged

in the battle of Chancellorsville. His captain, O. W. Holmes,

Jr., was very soon wounded, and Lieutenant Paine took command

of the company till the battle was over ; and he was,

according to all statements, calm and cool. He then took part

in the forced marches which carried our army to Gettysburg,

and in the battle which followed. He fell at Gettysburg on

Friday, 3 July, 1863. The following

brief memorial account of him, written by his mother, Fanny

C. Paine. Could the last words of one be more truly characteristic

than those of Lieutenant Paine, as told below ? —

" On Friday, 3 July, 1863, the Second Corps, under General

Hancock, held the left centre of our line, midway

is an extract from a

between the

cemetery and the Round Top, — the lowest part of our lines left

by nature the easiest to assault, and thus the key to our posi-

tion. It was here that General Lee ordered Pickett's division,

composed in good part of veteran Virginia troops, and supported

to make their last terrible assault. Not a

by another column,

shot was fired by the Twentieth Massachusetts till the enemy

were near, and Lieutenant-Colonel Macy gave the order. Then

its fire was quick and deadly. Though directly in front of them,

the enemy did not reach them ; but ten or twenty rods to their

right the weight of the enemy crushed through our line, passing

over it, perhaps thirty or forty yards, up a httle hill. It

was the crisis of the if

day,

not the turning-point

of the war.

General Hancock in command of the corps, and General Gibbon

in command of the division, had both been wounded. Colonel

Hall, commanding the brigade, was hurrying up his men. Lieutenant-Colonel

Macy received orders from him to lead the Twentieth

Massachusetts against the enemy. He gave orders to

Captain Abbott, who commanded the right company, and to his

Adjutant ; but before they were repeated to any one else, both

himself and his Adjutant were shot down. Captain Abbott led

his company ; and the other companies, seeing

the movement,

and with the instinct of assault, followed. Other troops came

4


up.

26

It was in this attack, in the thickest of the fight, and ex-

posing himself in front of his men, that Lieutenant Paine was

struck by a ball, which broke his leg. Falling on one knee, he

waved his sword, and urged on his men, and was at that moment

struck by a shell, which caused instant death. His last words,

just before he fell, were, ' Is n't this glorious ? '

" The Twentieth Massachusetts mustered that night only

three officers and twenty men. But of Pickett's assaulting

column a still smaller proportion was left, for there were few

who crossed our line without being killed or captured."

The lamented Major Abbott writes as follows of Lieutenant

Paine 's ability and courage : —

" There is one thing I can bear testimony to, and that is his

wonderful talent in making himself one of the most accom-

plished officers I knew in the army, in two months' time. His

memory and application were so great, that in a month's time

he knew the whole book of tactics and regulations, and commanded

a division in battalion and brigade drill as well as any

old officer, besides all doing his guard and police duty with an

exactness, a rigor, an enthusiasm, that the commanding officer

in vain tried to stimulate in some of the older officers, sparing

neither himself nor his men. When Lieutenant Paine was

officer of the guard, his influence was felt by the remotest sen-

tinel on the outskirts of the town. His intelligence and disci-

pline, and indomitable resolution, were so fully recognized by

Colonel Macy, that he often spoke of promoting him. Besides

Lieutenant Summerhays, who saw hira as I have described, he

was seen by Lieutenant Perkins during the action, — his face, ac-

cording to both, actually glowing with pleasure,

as it used in

Falmouth when he had the best of an argument. He used

always to be asking

me how an officer should bear himself in

battle, when he should be behind and when before his men. I

had alwa^'^s rather understated than overstated the amount of

danger it was necessary to incur, because I had seen at Freder-

icksburg that he would be rather disposed to expose himself

too much than otherwise. He certainly carried out to the letter

the duty, as he used to describe it, of an officer charging at the

head of his men, and he evidently felt all the joy he supposed he


27

should. His body was found close to the fence, where the

Rebels had their last desperate stand."

At a meeting of the Class held 8 July, 1863, only three

months after Paine left us, the following resolutions Avere adopted :

" Whereas, It has pleased Almighty God, in his wise provi-

dence, to remove from this life our beloved friend and classmate,

Sumner Paine,

" Resolved, That, while we as a Class bow with resignation to

the Divine will, we moum deeply the loss of one whose whole-

hearted manhood and generous character had endeared him to

all who knew him.

" Resolved, That in this bereavement we sincerely sympathize

with the friends and familv of the deceased.

" Resolved, That, while we cannot but grieve at the death of

our friend, we remember with gratitude that he fell in defence

of his country, another name added to the long list of martyrs

to her cause.

" Resolved, That we, as a Class, wear the usual badge of

mourning for thirty days.

" Resolved, That a copy of these resolutions be sent to the

family of the deceased.

"

Resolved, That these resolutions be printed in the papers of

the day."

* CABOT JACKSON RUSSEL. He was born in New

York, 21 July, 1844.

He remained with us only a few months. After leaving Col-

lege he returned to New York, and continued his studies there

until the spring of 1862, when he joined a party of scientific

men in a journey across the Western prairies by way of Salt

Lake. While on this journey he heard of the seven days' battles

before Richmond, the effect of which upon him is best

shown by an extract from a letter, written by him 10 June,

1862, at Fort Laramie. He says : " The officers gave us their

telegrams, which told all they knew, and these said McClellan

fought seven days, retreated, and lost twenty thousand men.

We do not know whether that is true or not, and I don't know

about Jim or Charley (Lowell). If anything has happened to

either of them, father, I shall want to enlist as soon as I come

back." At Fort Bridger, he learned of the death of his cousin,

Lieutenant James Lowell. He sent the letter containing this

intelligence to a companion from whom he had just parted,

writing across "

it, Now I shall certainly go." In another let-

ter, he says, referring to his loss : " Since then I have wanted

doubly to go, and I wish — how I wish— father would let me."

He immediately returned home, and of him at that time his

friend Mr. H. P. Arnold, in the " Harvard Memorial Biogra-

" He reached home before the time appointed, and

phies," says :

upon his arrival his friends were struck with the great change in

him. He himself felt like a different person. He had become

very athletic, and his clear eye and bronzed complexion testified

to his rugged health. He had not lost his winning ways, and


32

they evidently came from a heart grown more manly. But the

change was more radical. His whole soul was now bent on

joining the army. It was not merely the death of his cousin,

nor his sympathy with heroic enterprise, that seemed to in-

fluence him, but an earnest wish to perform a worthy part in the

contest. He was not appalled at the prospect of losing his life

or of being crippled, nor did he appear ambitious of military

fame, or anxious to join a crack regiment. He thought the

artillery was the most dangerous and honorable post, and preferred

it on that account : but he was willing to take the posi-

tion of private in any regiment in any arm of the service."

He soon afterwards joined the Forty-fourth Massachusetts,

and was appointed a sergeant in Company F, Captain Storrow,

12 September, 1862. He served with his regiment through the

Tarborough and Goldsborough campaigns, and returned to Boston

4 March, 1863, to take a commission as First Lieutenant

Fifty-fourth Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry (colored), commanded

by Colonel Robert G. Shaw\ He was promoted to be

Captain 11 May, 1863. After staining in camp for a while, he

went with his regiment to Hilton Head. On 10 June, 1863, he

took part in an expedition to Florida, under command of Colonel

On the 16th Captain Russel was engaged in an action wnth the

enemy, in which he showed great courage and coolness. On the

night of the 18th, he was killed in the assault on Fort Fisher.

The following account of those days, written by his friend Adjutant

James, will be read with interest : —

" Captain Russel took part in the sharp skirmish on James

Island, on 16 July, where his company bore the brunt of the

the skirmish line was driven in by an overwhelming force of the

enemy, he was ordered to regain the old position, and to hold it

at all hazards. Accordingly he deployed his skirmish line,

in one

advancing anxiously and boldly, with his field-glass

hand and sword in the other, rallying his meri by fours and by

platoons, as the necessity of the moment required, and capturing

himself the first prisoner of the day. He sent back word

to his Colonel in less than thirty minutes, that his line was

formed fifty yards in advance of the old one.

" On the night of the 17th, orders were received to join

General Strong's brigade, then at the front of Morris Island.

About three o'clock of the afternoon of the 18th, the Fiftyfourth

reported for duty to Brigadier-General Strong, and was

placed by him at the head of an assaulting column, then form-

ing on the beach in front of Fort Wagner, which was the objective

point. Captain Russel's company held the left of the

second line of the regiment, which position was the most dan-

gerous, on account of its proximity to the flanking fire of

James Island.

" At dusk of that night the column was ordered forward, and

Russel, with an ardor and devotion which never wavered, threw

himself upon his death. When last seen by those who sur-

vived, he was lying mortally wounded on the ground, and across

him the body of his dear friend. Captain William H. Simpkins,

his comrade in arms and in death, than whom the country has

lost no nobler and more devoted servant during the war.

" My friendship with Cabot began with our joint entrance

into military life ; and, from the first moment to the last of that

friendship, it presented him full of honor. For one so young he

displayed striking ability and strength of character ; so that

when, at the age of eighteen years, he was placed in command

of men of the Forty-fourth, many of them ten years his seniors,

his title to

graduates of the University, they gladly recognized

their confidence and support. Pre-eminently conscientious in

all his military duties, frank, sweet-tempered, manly, handsome,

he won the respect and personal devotion of his officers and

men.

" From temperament and principle he was an enthusiast for

freedom ;* and no one entered into the war with a greater con-

viction than he, that it was bound up intimately with the interests

of

liberty. He had no sooner made his choice between the

promptings of incliiiation and those claims he deemed of paramount

importance, than his sympathies grew with the enforcement

of the negroes' rights. He would gladlv have devoted his

life, if it had been protracted, to this cause. As it was, he gave

it up in its very flower, with a zeal, a courage, a disinterestedness,

unsurpassed even in the annals of the war."

I can in no better way dose this brief account of the noble

hfe of our loved classmate, of whose memory we all shall ever

be proud, than by quoting again from the language of his friend,

Mr. Arnold, at the end of his notice of Captain Russel's life.

" The darkness of night hung; over the sufferings of that

sacrifice, where the noblest and the best appointed to lead black

soldiers to death, and prove that they were men, had obeyed the

order. When our fell troops back from an assault, in which

they were not supported, hundreds of dead and wounded

marked how far they had gone. Among those who did not re-

turn was Captain Russel. A ball struck him in the shoulder,

and he fell. Captain Simpkins offered to carry him off". But the

boy had become a veteran in a moment, and the answer was,

'

No, but you may straighten me out.' As his friend, true to the

end, was rendering this last service, a bullet pierced his breast,

and his dead body fell over the dying.

" Some of his soldiers offered to carry him off", but his last

order was, ' Do not touch me, move on, men follow ; your

colors '

and left ; they

him. He was not quite nineteen, and

he was breathing his spirit out in suff'ering, in the darkness of

night, amid the roar of musketry and cannon. But he lay by

the side of a dear friend, in the steps where his hero leader had

fallen, and surrounded by hundreds whom he had helped to

raise to be men and fellow-soldiers. There was no one there to

receive his last words of affection, but his generous impulses in

behalf of his country and his fellow-men were becoming through

his blood an element of the nation's life. No stone need mark

the place where his bones moulder, for future generations will

reverently point to the holy ground, where the Colonel and two

Captains of the Fifty-fourth Massachusetts were buried with

their soldiers."

CHARLES BAILEY SHUTE. He was born in Maiden,

Mass., 24 January, 1843.

Li September, 1865, he became Principal of the High School

in Abington, Mass., which position he resigned in December,

1865, and took that of sub-master in the Brookliue High

School, where he remained one year, at the same time studying


35

medicine. In November, 1866, he began to study with John

L. Sullivan, M. D., of Maiden. During the winter of 1867 - 68

he attended lectures at the Harvard Medical School.

Address : Maiden, Mass.

* GEORGE nOMER SMITH. He was born in Needham,

Mass., 9 June, 1843.

After he left College, he was private tutor for a while in New

York, and then entered the office of I. Henry Bowditch, M. D.,

in Boston, to study medicine. On account of ill health he was

obliged to give up study after a brief trial, and died of consumption

in East Medway, Mass., 23 January, 1867, at the age of

twenty-three years and seven months.

Smith's character was one of remarkable beauty. While he

was with us, his nature, delicately sensitive, and his pride peculiarly

intense, kept him retired from us, so that only a few indeed

knew him or his excellent character. At the Class meeting

called on account of his death, your Secretary read to those

present a letter received from him, in order that those who did

not know him well in life might know him now that he was

gone from us. As only a few of us could be present

at that

meeting, for the same reason a copy of that letter is added, for

the sake of those who did not hear it read. It shows how

deeply he was interested in our Class, and also that sensitive

phase of his character which we cannot but respect and love.

It was written in answer to a circular, asking subscriptions

to the

Memorial Hall. He writes : —

" Please read my letter before you make judgment

on the

sum I send. I am more sorry than you that it is not larger.

You of course knew me as one of the '

'

students at Cam-

poor

bridge. My father was very poor,

so as to afford me no aid at

all, and I Avorked through, partly by scholarships, partly by the

aid of friends (making a debt of some hundreds which I am

in honor bound to pay), and partly by my own exertions. That

accounts for my not having subscribed to the Class Fund, which

caused me more sorrow than you may imagine, for I fear that

that was ascribed to meanness which was caused by poverty.

Still I hoped some time to make up for what I was unable to do


36

then. I bad determined to push on through my chosen profes-

sion ; and, after having a situation as tutor in New York till

November, I went to Boston to enter the Medical School, and

the same day was taken down with pleurisy Of course

this long illness has been expensive, with nearly one hundred

visits from a doctor three miles away, and wme, etc. If I were

sure of recovery in three months more, I should like sending

more, but imder the circumstances it would be just neither to

my father nor to myself. I am sorry to have troubled you with

so long a letter, but I was glad of an opportunity of placing

myself in a true light, so as not to be considered mean, while all

the rest were so generous." This letter was written 28 June,

1866. This fear that we his classmates w^ould misunderstand

him seemed to haunt him, and on his death-bed he requested

his mother to write to your Secretary again. She says, 12

January, 1867 : —

" I write at the request of my son, to tell you that he has

been sick since a year ago last November, and is fast failing.

He can live only a short time to all human appearance.

" When he graduated, and all his classmates were giving for

the Class Fund and Class Cup, he could not give as he wished,

for he had nothing to give, and it was only by the kindness of

friends that he was able to dress himself for Class Day. He

felt it very keenly, knowing that it appeared like meanness ; but

he lived in hopes some time to be able to give and redeem his

character and he wishes ;

you to know how sorry he feels that it

can never be, for God has ordered otherwise. When that God

in whom he trusts takes him to himself, I will write aofain to

you."

Ten days afterwards she wrote :

" Homer desired me to noti-

fy you as soon as he left us, which he did this morning, at three

o'clock, with the full assurance of a blessed immortality."

No words can be a better eulogy than these, showing his sensitiveness

and peculiar delicacy,

as admirable as it was unfortu-

nate and unfounded.

At the Class meeting which has been mentioned, a letter was

received from Dr. Bowditch, who had always taken a kind in-

terest in Smith. It is now given for the benefit of all who have

not heard it —

:


37

" I see by the evening papers,

that your Class intends to pay

a tribute of respect

to the memory of G. Homer Smith. I am

sure you will not deem it indecorous on my part, if I join

a few facts con-

durincr that tinie that, I believe, he entered your Class without

conditions.

" And here came the first of his trials. Proud and sensitive

at the thought of the reception of favors, especially from those

richer than himself, he determined at first to five in the simplest

style, and to his

food at his own room. This course I

saw would be fatal to him, I opposed it, and he yielded unwill-

ino-ly, but he made, I fear, at last, very imperfect arrangements

with his landlady, and at a very cheap rate.

" His second trial was the fact that he could not compete

with the trained workers who had spent from three to four times

as manv years in preparation as he had, and his distress was

greater when he came out in his first year only the twenty-first

in rank. He thought that we — his many finends and I —

should think him unworthy, whereas we saw all his difficulties,

and admired the success he had achieved.

" His third and o-reatest trial was the loss of a Bowditch

" Durincr a part

of his career he expressed a certain degree of

bitterness in regard

to rich people, which demanded our rebuke.

He could not imagine that any such could bestow a favor, except

for the purpose

of '

'

patronizing

the recipient of his bounty. But

this bitterness gradually wore away, and I saw but little of it

during the latter half of his College life. I fear, however, that

this dependence and consequent unwillingness to spend for anythino-

but the bare necessities of life may have prevented him

from throwincr himself as heartily as others do into the festivals


of the College.

38

I may be mistaken, but when I remember that

I had to argue with him as to the propriety of joining heartily

in Class Day, Class supper, and Commencement Day exercises

and pleasures, I feel persuaded that I am correct.

" After graduation he spent four most happy months in New

York, in the bosom of a delightful family, full of intelligence

and kindness. He revelled in books, and devoted himself body

and soul to the acquirement of the German and French languages.

His kind friends procured for him a pass to the German

theatre, and he went several times a week, six miles (three each

way), to attend this school.

" His pupil entered Columbia College, and he returned to

die by slow and terrible disease (consumption). For two years

he fought against it, but it was gradually and surely taking his

life away. But not until a few weeks before his death did

he have much doubt of ultimate recovery. On one occasion

when visiting my study, he asked the plain question, ' Am I

going

to live or to die ? '

1 replied, '

that no one but the Al-

miglity could certainly know what would be the result ; but

that it was evident during the long; time he had been ill he had

not improved, and that, under the circumstances, he ought to

consider as a man and a Christian the possibility of death.' He

said not a word, but received my remarks calmly ; but, as he

told a friend, the idea of dying had never risen fully before him

until that moment, and that for three days he was rebellious and

unwilling to accept of his fate ;

and then came oVer him a heav-

enly peace, which he had never known before, and he accepted

every pain he bore as the messengers sent to him by God for

his benefit. He became gentle and loving ;

'

'

A peace that passeth all understanding

utterly annihilated.

seemed to and really

did possess him. Thankful for the smallest

kindness, and full of faith in the Divine goodness, he seenned to

shed a peace on all that saw him, so that I verily believe his last

few weeks of life were of more real avail upon all connected

with him than any^f his previous years. From far and near,

friends sent messages and gifts of loving thoughtfulness ; so that,

while cheering his mind, they prevented extra pains to his poor,

wearied, worn-out body. With few exceptions (momentary) he


39

retained his entire consciousness to the last two hours, serenely-

hopeful. He made every arrangement for his simple funeral,

requesting that in every way it should be the least expensive

possible, in order that some of his hard-earned savings might be

left to his parents.

" I have written these few pages to you, in the hope that his

classmates may not deem them inopportune, when they are about

to give expression to their own feelings on the occasion of his early

death. You may have wiser and brighter persons among your

number, none better than he was, none more conscientious, none

more faithful in the performance of every duty ; and most

happy will it be for each one of you, if your last hours may be

like his."

At a meeting of the Class, held at the Parker House, Boston,

29 January, 1867, it M^as resolved : —

" That, while we recognize in this bereavement the hand of

Him who doeth all things well, we would express our deepest

sorrow at the loss of one who, by the worth of his character and

the warmth of his heart, endeared himself to all who were fa-

vored with his acquaintance.

" That we bear testimony to his brilHant talents, joined with

unremitting perseverance, even in the face of difficulties, and

above all to that Christian trust which Avas his support during

his long and painful illness.

" That we tender our heartfelt sympathy to the afflicted fam-

ily

of the deceased."

too strongly express our sense of the loss of one, whose gentlemanly

bearing and uniform amiability bound him to us by the

strongest personal ties ; whose generous heart and genial dis-

position have filled always us with emotions of love and affection

; whose brilliant talents and superior scholarship gave prom-

ise of a life of honor and usefulness ; and whose conscientious

regard for right, arising from that deep Christian sentiment

which sustained him so well during his last painful sickness,

made him worthy of the high esteem in which he was always

held.

" Resolved, That, in our sorrow, we sincerely sympathize with

his family in their far greater bereavement.

" Resolved, That a copy of these resolutions be forwarded to

the family of the deceased, and to the papers of the day, for

MEMORIAL HALL FUND.

• The undersigned were appointed to solicit and receive subscriptions

from our Class, towards the erection of the proposed Alumni Hall

and Harvard Memorial.

A circular was issued, under date of 12 June, 1866, to all the grad-

uated members of the Class. Answers and subscriptions were re-

ceived from Anderson, Blight, Brownell, Chad wick, Churchill, Clif-

ford, Cook, Dillaway, Dorr, Ellis, G. A. Goddai'd, A. Greenough,

Hollister, Jackson, Johnson, Mifflin, Osgood, Putnam, Rand,

Smith, Swett, Tucker, "Ware, Warren. — 25.

Rogers,

The total amount of sub-;criptions was $658, all of which has been

paid in except $25. Of this amount, $525 has been paid over to the

Finance Committee, and the rest remains in our hands. We would

remind the Class, that this is the smallest amount given by any Class,

— less than one half that of the Class of 1864, — and we should be

very happy to receive any additional subscriptions from those who

have not already given.

It is expected and desired, that each Class

should raise at least $1,000.

It gives us pleasure to state, that, in addition to the above-mentioned

subscriptions from the Class, an " individual donation " of $5,000 has

been made by John Henry Bradford, of our Class.
