The New York Tribune, as well as other journals that have widely copied the alleged witticism, do Harvard an unpardonable injustice in crediting to Harvard the story of the two twins who could only be distinguished by sending one to Harvard and one to Yale, "whence one came back a gentleman and one a Connecticut rough." The story did not originate at Harvard; its first appearance was in the Yale Record. To attribute its authorship to Harvard is to impute to her a spirit of discourtesy and arrogance which we are sure she has never yet exhibited. To explain the design of the Record in publishing the story we are unable; we give it the credit, however, of ingenuous and honorable motives. To claim the item as a Harvard "sneer" is only one more of the innumerable slanders upon this college by the public press, about which we have so often to complain.
