Excerpt from The Index, 1871
We can hardly realize that three years have passed away since we began our College career, and that the beautiful writ ing Of promise upon the woods, heralds the approach Of our fourth and last winter at Amherst. Joyfully for some rea sons, but sadly for others, we look forward to the day when our Senior mantles will fall upon other shoulders. Joyous - that we may begin in earnest life's battles, proving the worth Of our outfit in the struggle, and our wisdom or folly in taking a new departure from the Older system Of educational train ing. Sad - that we must part from familiar, valued friends and scenes, andthat four years Of our happiest days can never be repeated.
