3. Now it was not the custom in the Promised Land to welcome strangers
in the fifth year, but this year came six such promising strangers that they
were admitted into the clan.
4. Now these six were :- Colby, a statuesque maiden, Gray. not a sombre
maiden as her name implies, but gay and gracious. Also Greenough, who was
of a dramatic mind, and jepherson, who was called by many "jeff".
5. Then there was Margaret, a Speer, who was the constant joy of the
children of eighteen, on account of her powerful mind. And from far across the
sea, yea, even from Shanghai, came a Luce, well-beloved and skilled in the
management of chopsticks.
6. And once again all the children of eighteen brake bread beside the
waters, but this time they were mighty waters, even the Sea of Haggett.
7. And there fell great responsibilities on the children of eighteen, but they
bore them as best they might.
8. Now in the time directly after vacation, a great plague fell upon the
Promised Land, even the plague of examinations, and many succumbed.
9. And for this reason it was held best for the children of eighteen to go
for a rest into a far land, and lntervale was selected.
10. So for four long days did the children of eighteen have sports, even
11. And once more in the season of floods did they hold a mighty festival,
and the favored few again met to dance and make merry in the " Hall of Exercise."
12. Now it came to pass that in the spring season the children of eighteen
honored the memory of one Shakespeare, a poet.
13. And they acted from his writings, even his script of "As You Like lt":
and before it was over there were many envied Shakespeare being dead, so weary
were they with rehearsals.
14. And the time quickly passed, and behold the time was come when
the children of eighteen ate their last banquet together, and there was mirth
and sadness intermingled.
15. And at last, on the eleventh day of the sixth month of the year 1918,
were the final rites of the children of eighteen held, and the hearts of all were
16. And behold! there came a mist over all, and I heard nine and thirty
voices of the children of eighteen chanting, " Praises to the Class of Eighteen!"
