It is a violent blow that the overseers have seen fit to inflict on the classical department of the University by permitting the departure of so excellent a scholar as Professor Croswell in addition to the loss of Professor Dyer, whose scholarship is no less universally acknowledged. It is not here our place to criticise the course of events that led to this wholly unexpected - might we say unwarranted - loss. To us falls the profitless task of expressing deep regret at losing two teachers who have won the esteem and the thanks of so many of our number. We are convinced that we express the true feelings of every man who has had any intercourse with either Professor Dyer or Professor Croswell when we say that their departure will be a source of grief to every one of us.
