We agree with our contemporaries in their expressions of regret at the prospect of the possible departure of Professor Palmer from the university. The efficiency and popularity of the department of philosophy at Harvard is a matter of pride to all. It should be the aim of the college to secure more men possessed of the ambition and energy of Prof. Palmer, while such a loss as this should not be permitted under any considerations. If an efficiency could be secured in every department of college instruction at Harvard equal to that of the department of philosophy or of Greek, our position as a college would be enviable indeed; and it would be all the more a matter of regret if the success of either of these departments should become impaired by the permanent departure of any of its instructors from the university.
