Diary of William C. Allen

Second Month, 12

At 7 :30 a. m. we were on the platform of the Normal School facing about 800 prospective teachers. Men predominated, which is unusual in institutions of that character. I spoke on international peace. I was frequently applauded when making appeals to obey the law of righteousness felt in the human heart, and to carry their influence on behalf of good out into their fields of future effort.
