It was very generally known that the library was supposed to contain at least two copies of this book and everybody wondered where the other copies were. Purely by accident, one of the students found a second copy on a chair, which was pushed under a bench so that the book was hidden from view. The placing of the book in this position was either a very remarkable coincidence or else it was a deliberate abuse of the privileges of the library on the part of some student for his own personal benefit. That it was the latter is almost certain. We do not know who did this; probable nobody but the culprit knows. We can only let the man, whoever he is, know in this public way that his action is unworthy of a Harvard man; more specific criticism must come from his own conscience.
