It is very hard to take our defeat today from Pennsylvania. The fact that Knipe called Harvard's the strongest eleven of the season, our victory over Pennsylvania last year, and the fine playing of the team in the Yale game had led us all to expect a different outcome. But all we can do is to accept the defeat cheerfully and keep up a loyal spirit, and support the eleven next year even more heartily than this year. We cannot be too grateful to Captain Emmons, Dr. Brooks, Mr. Deland, Lewis, and the other coaches for their untiring efforts this year. They have done their best and that has been wonderfully well. The team was one of the best that has ever represented Harvard, but luck has been against it. Now let every Harvard man stand by the team loyally and show them and the world that we appreciate their efforts, thank them for their work, and are prepared to support them heartily another year.
