Excerpt: ...to your letter of October 27, I have to state that while the time I was at your 27th Gymnastic Tournament was much less than I had hoped to give to it, yet I was able to see something of the different kinds of work of your organization. I spent one day at the Fair Grounds and was very highly nleased with the gymnastic exercises which I saw there. The excellent order, the thorough discipline, and the general appearance of the members were all highly satisfactory. I was struck with the enthusiasm shown in reference to many of the exercises in which, while there was competition, there was no show of bodily contest. Another feature worthy of notice seemed to be the wide distribution of the ages of those who were participating in the exercises. I spent some time in visiting the quarters of some of the organizations and wish to testify to the excellent order and the careful arrangements which had been made for providing them with comfortable places to eat and sleep. I spent one evening at Music Hall and was very highly pleased with the exercises there. I congratulate the organization on its success in maintaining literary competitions of a very high order. There are few educational institutions in the United States where better work could be shown than appeared on the stage in Music Hall. I shall have to leave minute and technical criticism to those who have had more training and experience in this direction than I have. Yours truly, W. S. Chaplin, Chancellor.
