It is built of brick with three granite tablets inscribed respectively with the dates 1636 and 1863, also the college seal.

Thus the shades of George Washington and William Tell seem to walk together on these Elysian fields. Dearer was the river to the poet for the name, which reminded him of three friends, all true and tried, and how tender is the later good-night to one of these, a friend, who bore thy name, sleeping in sweet Auburn, around which the river still steals with such silent pace. Others have written too of our river, ours and the world's, but the cool wind blows more freshly, reminding us that this is still March. We look
