By the death last November of Mr. William W. Allen of the class of 1817, Mr. Samuel Edmund Sewall of the same class became senior alumnus. On the 20th of December, however, Mr. Sewall also passed away and left this position to the only surviving member of the class of 1817, Hon. George Bancroft, the well known American historian, who was born October 3, 1801. Mr. Bancroft, although first in college seniority, is yet younger than three living members of the class of 1818-Mr. Sidney Bartlett, born in February, 1799; Rev. Francis A. Farley, born in June, 1800, and Rev. Wm. Goddard, born in September, 1800. Mr. Brinley, secretary of the class of 1800, and the fourth and last surviving member, is Mr. Bancroft's junior by a little over one month.
