    Excerpt from The Record of the Class of '87: With an Appendix, Containing Full Statistical Information From All Departments of the University of Pennsylvania; June, 1887

    Strongly impressed with the necessity of doing away with this reproach to literature, the committee has determined to give to the world this record of the unexampled career of an unexampled class. Exactly how the book is to supply the need on account of which it was created, will become evident as the reader approaches the southern cover. The contents of the record will be seen to be at once explanatory and definitive, narrative and descriptive, argumentative and excitatory, persuasive and conclusive. The style in which ll. Is written is both pathetic and amusing, sacred and profane. If the last-named element should ever seem to attain to undue proportions, the committee begs the reader to weigh well the enormous effect of Childhood's in¿uences, and to be lenient with those whose early education was left to the care of such men as the Reverend Frederick Augustus Muhlenberg, D. D.

    Many friends - more than could be readily mentioned here - have helped the committee in its work. Besides the classmates, whose personalities are but partially concealed in the work which they have contributed, the Faculty of the University of Pennsylvania is deserving of especial thanks. To the Faculty the committee owes what is worth more than help - inspiration during hours of gloom, and also a never failing butt for all gibes and jokes Mr. Syle having left for parts unknown, the record is not provided with an index.
