EDITORS HARVARD HERALD: I was surprised to read in your editorial columns on Tuesday, Jan. 16th, that I officially had authorized the statement that the challenge of the Yale Boat Club would undoubtedly be accepted. I beg to state that these remarks were made by me at least six weeks ago, and were intended simply as an expression of my private opinion. By correcting this mistake you will greatly oblige,
Yours very truly,
CHAS. P. CURTIS, JR.,Pres. H. U. B. C.We owe an apology to the president of the Boat Club for conveying the idea that his mere expression of opinion was an official statement.
