Henry Dallam (Class of 1848) writes W. Boyd Wiliams and describes starting classes at Dickinson. This experience marks "the first time I have been away from home for any length of time," as Dallam notes. After discussing how his father dropped him off, Dallam briefly mentions his classmates. "There is every kind of character & disposition to be met with at College and it is sometimes amusing just to mark the difference and disposition you meet with in the course of an hour," as Dallam observes. Dallam also discusses his plans for Christmas break. Transcript included.
