Excerpt from The Bomb, 1885: The Yearbook of the Virginia Military Institute
By a generous appropriation from the Board of Visitors of the Insti tute, we have been able to publish an annual, typographically, at least, a success; and now the bomb is here, with fuse lit and shell charged, prepared to assail the walls of the vulnerable, one and all, without dis tinction. And if, after the manner of bombs, we are destined to ter minate in a bust, we console ourselves with the reflection that we have had for our targets those who have laid themselves liable to assault, be they whom they may; and for our aim, the welfare and prosperity of our noble Alma Mater.
