Sons and Daughters (Pupils)
"Old High School" and the "Seminary"
of Sixty Years Ago.
If in my research (which has occupied my time nearly a year and a half) I have omitted to do justice to any one of the pupils in my efforts to gather up the recollections of our Alma Mater, it was not from want of due respect, but from a cause beyond my reach; therefore, if in the perusal of these pages they afford you the pleasure and gratification that I have received in hearing from so many of them with expressions of encouragement, in my endeavors to put on record these reminiscences, then I cannot but feel that I have been in some degree rewarded for my labors. To those who have given me assistance in this work, I tender my sincere thanks.
Springfield, Mass., January, 1890.
