“[T]he late Samuel McChord Crothers, genial wit and essayist, ... after listening to the speeches at a certain Harvard Commencement remarked that he gathered that the world had been in great danger, but that all would now be well.”

“After that came commencement daythat great day for which all other days were made. And it went. And that night I felt of myself all over, and to my astonishment, I found twas the same old Rud. Not a single cubit added to my stature; not a hairs breadth to my girth. If anything, on the contrary, I felt more lank and gaunt than common, much as if a load were off my stomach.”
—Rutherford Birchard Hayes (18221893)
