Excerpt from The Report of the Secretary of the Class of 1863 of Harvard College: July, 1863 to July, 1866
The expense of printing the Report, at present prices, may be large; and it is hoped that all Who feel disposed will contribute to defray it, and thus save so large a draft on the class fund. The fund, at pres ent, amounts to a sum which falls far short of what we need. The object of the fund is to meet the expenses of class meetings, and of such reunions as we are this year to enjoy, and of printing Re ports, and all other incidental expenses. We thus escape the disa greeable necessity of continual assessments, and ensure a larger attend ance at all meetings. The plan has succeeded well in other classes, some of whom have funds large enough to pay all their expenses, of every description. I know there are many calls for money just at the present time. The Alumni Hall Fund demands our attention. A subscription paper for the class fund, however, will be offered to you, and I hope you will put money enough in your purse to pay all bills which may arise.
