Excerpt from The Yackety Yack, 1919 So to us who are left to carry} on as best we may the work to which he called us comes joy as well as sorrow. We will do as he taught us. His spirit shall have a double immortality - an immortality in the life'of the University that he loved so well, and that other immortality which is the substance of things not seen, the secret life whence he drew his' strength. The One remains. That this clear spirit dwelt among us for a time is proof that, amid the crash of principalities and systems, man still may lay hold on the infinite; proof that, whatever be the fate of the individual, the human spirit is an undying flame. And to us who knew him best this, after all, is but another way of saying that he is not dead. He is the Beloved Captain - we feel towards him as Donald Hankey felt towards the leader whom he lost.
