The "Night Thoughts" of Edward Young have been commonly held to be among the classics of the romantic school. The romantic quality of the poems is enhanced by the fact that they are said to have been written largely to compensate for huge losses sustained by the poet in the South Sea Bubble. Young will be the subject of Professor Elton's lecture in English 8 this morning at 9 o'clock in Harvard 6. English 8 is one of the courses which should be marked with two circles, like the fence posts in front of houses, as a sign that vagabonds will nearly always find what they are looking for within. Professor Elton will include Dyer in this morning's lecture.

There is no similar sign from the vagabond's code to guide me to any lecture at 10 o'clock. The next hour, however, will make up for it. I am going to hear Professor Haskins lecture in History 8, the history of France to 1469. This morning at 11 o'clock he will discuss the activity in arts and letters that occurred under Charlemagne, what is commonly known as the Carolingian Renaissance. It will be in the room directly in front of one as one enters Harvard Hall, the number of which I can never remember.

At noon, Professor Hocking is lecturing in Philosophy 5, a fact which speaks for itself. He will continue the discussion of the philosophy of the state which makes up his course. His particular subject this morning will be "The Psychology of the State."

I may go to English 16 at 2 o'clock to hear Mr. Billyer, who has just been recommended as Professor of English to the regents of Trinity for next year. English 16 is his course on the history and principles of English versification, and his lecture this afternoon will be on the heroic couplet. There is doubt in my mind, however, for Professor Whitehead scholar and philosopher from England, is giving one of the King's Chapel lectures at 2.30 o'clock. It will be given in King's Chapel, being the fourth and last of the series on religion. Today's subject has been announced as "Truth and Criticism."
