places former classes had visited, as the Class of 1922 could not agree on either Washington or Gettysburg.
Under the guardianship of Mr. and Mrs. R. B. Taylor and Miss Cover, we arrived safely in the largest city in the world, where we immediately proceeded to our hotel (Pennsylvania), the largest in the United States.
The main points of interest which we visited in New York were the Battery, Grant’s Tomb, Statue of Liberty, Central Park, Governeur’s Island, Ellis Island, Wall Street, Stock Exchange, Flat Iron Building, and the Brooklyn Bridge.

On the afternoon of the second of June, we waved our last good-bye to the great city of New York in which we spent three of the most interesting days of our lives.
On arriving home late that evening, dead tired, we all retired early to make up some of those golden hours of sleep that we lost in New York.
