press upon me I live more in the past and less in the present.
Yes, I still take interest in what is going on about me, but not
Remember me to your children and especially to Miss Fannie.
As ever your friend,

I read with interest all the notices I see of you and those you
send me. Write me.
HIAYES TO BRYAN
10 Apr 1892
My dear Guy-
Your letter came last evening. It is very welcome. Its tone
and spirit are in exact harmony with my own temper and feelings.
The golden days are the days that are gone. It is a happiness to
dwell upon them and to live them over again.
Two or three weeks ago on an invitation from a student lecture
committee I went to Kenyon and made them a talk. Connected
as Trustee with three or four other Colleges-one of which, (The
Ohio State University), I am a founder-perhaps the founder, I
am so engaged at the Commencement season that I can not go to
Old Kenyon. Eight years away, it was like going home again
after a protracted absence. My theme for an offhand talk was
"Some of the boys and men at Kenyon more than fifty years ago."
Old Rosse Chapel was crowded. I never spoke to a more respon-
sive and enthusiastic audience. Students, officers, and the lawyers
in Mt. Vernon, Hurd, Delano, and Curtis-old graduates or stu-
dents before our time Judge Davis, Chase C. J., Stanton, Henry
Winter Davis &c &c Mcllvain & Sparrow-Bryan, Trowbridge,
Andrews, & Matthews. You see!

lected and in some degree down. It is thought to be however
looking up. But the Boy School with new building, with three
uniformed & well drilled companies, is very fine & promising.
The girl school is fully up to the mark also. The Theological
Seminary stands well. A gem of a chapel--a noble Library &
Building for it-and excellent gymnasium-Society Hall &c &c.
Taken together an unusually well equipped institution in Build-
Here’s what’s next.
