To the Editors of the Crimson:
May we announce through your columns that at the public meeting of the Student Volunteer Committee last evening, in Sever 11, a message was received from His Honor, Mayor Quincy, to the effect that a matter of very great importance to the city of Boston had suddenly arisen which demanded his immediate attention, and would prevent his speaking at the meeting. His expression of regret was accompanied by a statement that he would gladly deliver the promised address at a later meeting of the committee. Accordingly, Professor Palmer read the message from Mayor Quincy, and adjourned the meeting until a date to be arranged by the committee, of which due notice will be given.
C. E. NOYES, Chairman. F. R. STODDARD, Sectretary.
