Girard College January 27, 1941 Dear Classmates, The time has now come when we must bid each other farewell. And then we must bid adieu to Girard. Althouih distance will separate us, we shall always be bound together by the ties of friendship. We are going to miss the daily round of classes, the social hours of meals, and the gayety of our evening social functions, but we are going to miss classmates most of all. We are about to enter a new phase of our lives in which our actions, our words, and our influences will combine to es¬ tablish reputations. During this time we must remember that we are really contributing to the reputation and standing of our Alma Mater also. With this thought in mind let us go forth tomorrow to face life with increasing courage and fortitude. Let the end of our stay at Girard find us with precious memories - memories that will grow richer and richer with the years. And so, fellows, my best wishes for your happiness, health, and success in life as I have seen you enjoy them here in the greatest of all schools. Sincerely yours, Alfred Paoletti Slje ffinrtntljian TioT January
