For the invaluable assistance given by the coaches, Mr. Perkins, Mr. Watriss, and Colonel Bancroft, Harvard is deeply grateful. The work done by coaches bringing so little personal return to them, seems to us worthy of unstinted praise.
What has been said about the just mode to judge the nine's work, holds equally true of the crew. Their work cannot be judged in detail, but all know that Captain Davis has never weakened in his effort to produce a creditable crew, and that the many men who have rowed have been eager to do their best. The University is appreciative of the severe work that is being done at New London, and keenly hopes that it may end in victory.
