Whatever the cause of assemblage, it is always to Harvard's advantage to entertain guests. They must perforce contrast what they see here and with what they find at home and elsewhere. The necessary insufficiency of the judgments made, does not render them useless. First impressions will do very well to stimulate thought. And it is rather to be regretted that the customary restraints of courtesy de rive Harvard men of the entirely frank opinion of those who have suggestive comparisons to make. For Harvard hardly pretends to represent perfection in any field; and her guests are usually, in some sort, specialists.
