Genuted in the preparation of the book the editor extends his sincere thanks; especially to Professor John F. Genung and Pro fessor H. Humphrey Neill, whose literary taste and critical judgment have been an invaluable aid; and to Mr. William S. Rossiter, '84, for his kindly interest and advice in the typographical preparation.
