Excerpt from University of Ottawa Review, Vol. 6: September, 1903, to May, 1904
Fellow students we are leaving you. Little wonder it is then, that a feeling of genuine regret 'oppresses our hearts this morning, when we realize that we must leave, perhaps never to see again, y... ou who have been to us such soul true friends, you who have Shared alike our joys and our sorrows. The fall ofa leaf does not bring enduring sadness, because we know that ere long luxuriant foliage will again bedeck the trees; the decay of the beautiful ¿owers causes Slight regret, because we know that, in a short time, they will bloom again. This resembles your position, dear comrades, but it is not ours you go to your homes, but you will return here in two short months; we Shall never return. In this hour of regrets there is a softening ray playing gently around the gloom of our hearts; there is the knowledge that the memories of pleasant years spent with you, Shall help to cheer us on our way. Yours is now the duty of upholding the honor of this institution; guard it zealously, for it is a sacred trust.
