Excerpt from A History of Dartmouth College, 1815 1909: Being the Second Volume of a History of Dartmouth College and the Town of Hanover, New Hampshire, Begun by Frederick Chase The first volume of the "History of Dartmouth College and the Town of Hanover," by Frederick Chase, appeared more than twenty years ago. The second volume, carrying on the history of the College but not of the Town, owes much to him. He had not only outlined the plan of work, but had examined carefully a good part of the ground which it covers, and he had written something of it. A considerable part of Chapter X on the College Controversy, was thus prepared by him, and also a considerable part of the special topics with which the volume concludes. In completing the work thus begun I wish to acknowledge to the fullest degree my obligations to Mr. Chase. In following out the lines suggested by his memoranda I have been profoundly impressed with the keenness and thoroughness of his investigations. I have thoroughly examined the statements of his notes, as far as they depended on documents, and in no case have I found them incorrect. In a few cases I have allowed statements to pass, which I could not confirm, but which I knew came to him through oral testimony that was closed to me by death. But while I gladly associate the name of Frederick Chase with mine in the preparation of this volume, for the years that have passed since his death have given me an increased sense of the richness of his friendship and the value of his work, I do not lay upon him the responsibility for any part of the volume, except the parts which I have said that he wrote, and these I have gone over with as much care as if they were my own. All the letters and documents quoted in the volume are in the possession of the College unless a different ownership is indicated.

Excerpt from Exercises of Class Day at Dartmouth College, July 21, 1868 Carlyle, and demonstrate the beauty, or holiness, or dignity of labor, and advocate the building of barns and factories in preference to armories, navy-yards and gun-boats; but to speak of it as a mean and as an indispensable mean to success. Were there need of examples, I should hardly know where to begin to cite or where to end; learned and great men from Newton and Descartes to Sir William Hamilton have, with as much shrewdness as. Modesty, attributed their discoveries more to application and attention than to any prerogative of genius. And there are few more dangerous and destructive words in the dictionary than this word genius; it is picked out by every 'tyro, turned over, weighed, and often bound down to fit the cramped and probably cracked condition of his own cranium. There is' more genius dug out of the earth in the shape of kerosene oil, than was ever born into the world to flaunt for a time a dazzling flame and then go out, leaving a question able, fame, a bad example and one more to the list of human monstrosities. One good lamp, properly used, would be the most prolific producer of geniuses yet devised a half hour at a difficult root is worth more than all the Spanish chateaus ever erected. But to leave our genius dreamily gazing into future honor, fame and position, which like the ignis fatuus rise to vanish, let us follow our worthy knight of the lamp. He fares sumptuously every day with the finest spirits of ancient and modern times he is not content to feed his immortal mind on the dry husks of every-day and common place twaddle when we are at play he is at work, and bye and-bye when he can afford to play we cannot afford to Show our heads, for very shame.
