Day of Prayer for Colleges.January 28, 1896.
To the Editors of the Crimson:
Will you allow me to say, in answer to your correspondent of today, that the Day of Prayer for Colleges has been for years observed with sympathy at this University. We do not interrupt the regular duties, or-as in some colleges-make the day a holiday, but on Thursday next, both at morning prayers and at the afternoon Vesper Service, there will be special reference to the day and its associations. I have no doubt that the Christian Association also, at its meeting at 6.45 p. m., on Thursday, will, as usual, keep the day.
Very truly yours,
FRANCIS G. PEABODY.
