Philosophy at Harvard. [June, 
have before taken to be Ms in the University and College books, 
It does not seem likely that any one should have taken the trouble 
to write this in such an obscure little book except himself, and I 
therefore got our fellow, Mr, Kose, to photograph the page, and 
I send you a couple of copies. The Harvard Library would per¬ 
haps like to have one. . , , The book was left us by Breton, 
Master, 1665-1675.” The thanks of Harvard are due to Mr, 
Shuekburgh for his courtesy in communicating this interesting 
memorial of the Founder. 
The philosophical work in Harvard has in the last twenty years 
gone through an inner development which has met with a hearty 
response alike on the part of the University and of the students. 
The students have attended the courses in constantly growing 
numbers, the Governing Boards have provided the Division amply 
with new teachers, steadily increasing the number of professors, 
instructors, and assistants. The outer growth of the Division has

Department, a factor which cannot be provided by the University 
itself, and for which the help must come from without. Our work 
needs a dignified home, where under one roof all the varied philo¬

the unanimous opinion of the Department that we must ask the 
public for the funds to build at Harvard a 44 School of Philoso¬

prepared at the request of the Committee appointed to visit that division, con¬ 
sisting of G. B. Dorr, R. C, Cabot, R. H. Dana, Joseph Lee, and T. W. Ward, 
and was not originally intended for general publication. It embodies conclu¬ 
sions reached by the whole department, and has the unqualified support of the 
committee to whom it was addressed. — Ed.
