"The following persons have completed your prescribed English and Classical course and they are entitled to your certificates of graduation: William A. Brien; Alexander O. Dorris; Godfrey M. Fogg; Thomas S. Fauntleroy; Thomas H. Hamilton; Joseph W. Yeatman; Miss Lizzie Nichol.
The manner is which they acquitted themselves at their final examination is too fresh in your memories to need comment from me. Young Brien, Fogg and Yeatman have entered Yale College very reputably, and as I learn are successful in their College studies. Miss Nichol is the only young lady who has completed the full course of High School studies. She carries with her our confidence as a ripe scholar and has our best wishes for her future prosperity. Your High School has now attained to an age that classes will graduate annually, and we trust this institution will continue to send out students who shall compare favorably with schools of a similar kind.
