MR. White's report at the mass meeting of the condition of the finances for finishing the Soldiers'
Field was very interesting as showing how generously the graduates have stepped forward to contribute to the fund. Over forty-seven thousand dollars have thus been collected, leaving about three thousand dollars for the college to raise. Up to the present Mr. Hooper has had charge of the subscriptions and many thanks are due him for the sacrifice of time and convenience that the work has called for. Care has been taken that all the graduates in New England should have a chance to subscribe to the fund and in nearly every case they have responded generously. It now remains for us to raise the remaining three thousand dollars and if every man would contribute what he can the sum should be raised in a comparatively short time, The collectors will begin their work at once and they should meet with no difficulty in getting subscriptions.
