To the Editors of the CRIMSON:
Regarding your editorial about English 1 in Saturday's paper, I would like to quote briefly from a letter I recently received. The writer of the letter graduated from Harvard at the end of the Summer Term, 1948 and is now working for advanced degrees at Trinity College, Dublin. The standards in English Literature at Dublin are reputed to be high.
"The course I took when I came over covered two year's back work in five subjects (subjects he had not had here) with an oral and written exam in each for a final--but in English 1 it was not as hard as it sounds and one can only wonder at the amazing place that is Harvard--believe me, you'll never regret having gone there . . ."
