The Student Vagabond


The Vagabond has just returned from celebrating the anniversary of the one time in all the year that his Puritan forebears had a good time. For three centuries the last Thursday in November has seen New England asceticism buried under a pile of stuffed fowl and mince pies in such quantities as to flout the good taste of a Roman Emperor. Frigid godliness in its one attempt to appear human sank for a brief holiday a bit below the line that divides hunger from voracity, and this annual fall from grace has left its mark upon a more moderate posterity. For those who find a vestigeal interest in the intellectual slowly reviving this morning, the following lectures are recommended:
