Chapter Letters: Lambda - Buchtel College, December 1885

Lambda's lengthy letter reports the initiation of five new members. Lambda has studied Tennyson this term, and enjoyed more literary work than usual. On Friday October 30th, they attended a lecture by Mrs Liverpool entitled, "The Boy of To-Day," after which a formal reception was held. The lecture profits were over $30, which allowed Lambda to donate to the city schools. They note the construction of a new observatory at Butchell College, and list the honors and awards, new locations, and employment of their members.
