[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. PHILOSOPHY AT HÀKYAED.1 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 corresponded thus most fortunately to the internal development, by an harmonious cooperation of the administration, the teachers, and the students of the University. And yet there remains one other factor as an essential condition for the healthy life of the 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¬ sophical work now carried on at Harvard may he united. The need, has been urgently felt for many years, but only with the re¬ cent growth has the situation become intolerable. It is therefore the unanimous opinion of the Department that we must ask the public for the funds to build at Harvard a 44 School of Philoso¬ phy,” in the interest of the students and of the teachers, in the 1 The following paper, by the Chairman of the Division of Philosophy, was 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.
