The new recitation building at Yale, which occupies a site near the historic fence, is already under way. The foundations have been commenced, and are now ready for the corner-stone. This will be laid without any ceremonies.
The recent catalogue of the university, and several pamphlets containing information about Yale will be enclosed a in tin box and placed in a cavity cut in the top of the stone. East Divinity Hall is the only other building on the campus which has any similar material in its corner-stone. This stone contains documents relating to the illogical Seminary.
