A colored man named John Langley who pretended to be deaf and dumb was arrested Monday at 11.30 o'clock coming out of Matthews Hall, by Officer Tom Tevlin and Chief Conolly, both members of the Harvard police force. He showed a letter purporting to come from one John Brown, which stated that he was deaf and dumb and in great need of assistance. Using this letter, he had been begging among the students.

At his hearing yesterday, Langley was found to have a long prison record having served time in New York, Boston and Cambridge. He works under several aliases, among which are Wilson, Jackson and King. He was sentenced to one year's labor at the State farm.
