Permit me to make, in your paper, a brief statement of the result of the canvass to raise funds for the German library. In spite of the unseasonable time of the year, and of other grave hindrances, the members of the working committee have been able to collect about two hundred dollars, and more is promised. In view of material increase to the fund started by Mr. Henry Villard, work has already been begun in Sever 2, and by the fall, a comfortable library will be ready for the students of German literature. Two hundred volumes have been purchased, and the success of the undertaking is now assured.
It is earnestly desired to thank those gentlemen who have been so kind as to contribute and also those who have been willing to give their time at a season when they could ill afford it.
C. HUNNEMAN, Chairman.
