The society specially invites to the literary exercises all winners of scholarships, prizes, and other academic distinctions in the College during the past year, the parents of these students and the head-masters of the schools at which they were prepared for college.

Such men as Ralph Waldo Emerson 1821, Oliver Wendell Holmes '61 and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (hon.) '59 have read poems at these meetings. Among the men who have delivered lorations on these occasions are Edward Everett 1811, Joseph Story 1798, and Charles Sumner 1830.
The society expects to be able to announce in the near future the election of five men from the Senior class who have shown distinction in the divisional examinations or attained high honors at graduation
