A Statement by the Regent.
HARVARD UNIVERSITY, CAMBRIDGE, MASS, June 11, 1894.
DEAR SIRS:- I feel reluctant to enter upon the hopeless task of correcting misstatement in the newspapers regarding the affairs of Harvard College; but, as names were mentioned in this morning's Herald, in the account of an invasion of the room of a private tutor, by Professor Lyon and myself, it seems best to say that the whole story is false from beginning to end, No such arbitrary step has been taken for the apprehension of what the Faculty has, indeed, characterized as an objectionable method of tutoring, and no such step is contemplated.
I am, Very truly yours,
GEO. A. BARTLETT.
