The Memorial to Sir Walter Scott.
May I call attention to the opportunity offered us by the subscription-list now at the University Bookstore, to contribute to the Memorial to Sir Walter Scott about to be placed in Westminster Abbey. Scott has probably given more wholesome pleasure to people who love reading than has any other writer of modern times. That he has not yet been given his place in the Abbey, which already contains memorials to Longfellow and to Lowell, is an accident hard to explain. The circumtances of the memorial now proposed are such that very small subscriptions are more to be desired than large ones. For the number of those who have cared for Scott is great; and of these very many will probably like to give a dollar or less toward this tardy but permanent recognition of Scott's place among the great writers of English terature.
