To the Members of the Harvard University Hand, R.O.T.C., and others who assisted in the Sunday Memorial Service:
No finer tribute has ever been offered than Memorial Hall, by width Harvard University perpetuates the memory of these of its sons who gave their lives for their country during the Civil War. No more beautiful tribute could be conceived than the memorial which appears in the University church, to these who later have their lives for their country.
That these symbols of patriotism have engendered in the present college generation impulses to honor the heroic dead was amply attested by the generous and enthusiastic manner in which you responded to assist in the Memorial Service held last Sunday. As Chief Marshal of the parade on that occasion, I wish to add my personal thanks and word of appreciation to each of you who participated and helped to make successful these fitting ceremonies. Dana T. Gallup, Chief Marshal.
