Yesterday the crew finished its work in Cambridge, and today it leaves for New London. The year has been rather an unfortunate one in the way of accidents and set-backs. These set-backs have been all the more provoking as the material for this year's crew has been so exceptionally good. But patience and hard work can overcome a great deal, and whatever obstacles may have stood in the way of the crew's success have been almost wholly overcome by the untiring perseverance of Captain Perkins and his men. Today the crew starts off for its new quarters with the full confidence of the college behind it. Harvard has seen a great series of victories this year; and it feels sure that it is represented by a crew which will make a magnificent fight in order to keep up this good record.
The crew has still over a fortnight to practice on the New London course. Ahlenthusiastic send-off by the college will put extra confidence in the men and make these two weeks of rowing, weeks of the greatest advantage possible. It is enough to say that the crew leaves Leavitt and Peirce's at noon.
