EDITORIAL NOTE.

IN presenting their work to the public, the Editors hope that it will be received with the indulgence, and criticized with the clemency, usually accorded to such efforts.

The articles are for the most part the work of students presently connected with the University, but there are also a few contributions from distinguished alumni of former years. Amongst these the Editors would specially direct the attention of their readers to a short poem from the pen of the late Henry Glassford Bell, whose genial humour and poetic grace are now regretted by the country. To every album published during his career the late learned Sheriff was a contributor, and it may give additional interest to the present volume that it contains the last lines which he sent to the press.

As to those articles which are the work of present students, it is hoped they will be found to display such ability as will maintain the honour of our alma mater, while the diversity of their subjects will lend variety to the volume as a whole.

If it realize these hopes, the Editors are confident that the Album, judged rather as an earnest of the future than as the matured product of the past, will be accepted as a not unfitting memorial of the New College.
