PREFACE

TO THE SECOND EDITION.

THIS edition of the Bowdoin Poets, unexpectedly called for, is little more than a reprint of the first. Some changes have been made in the selections from former contributors, and a few pieces have been added from new sources. We regret our inability, in the circumstances, to secure more contributions from later graduates. The new view of the Colleges, however, got up by Mr. Griffin for this edition, is especially theirs. Earlier graduates will look in vain for certain prominent objects of interest, intimately associated with their recollections of Bowdoin. The old church, the wooden chapel, and the President's mansion, are not there. And yet we rejoice the more, in the elegant structures that have replaced them, and in the general evidence of improvement so happily shown in the new picture.

GORHAM, MARCH, 1849.
