“Our reading is ended; but I cannot allow the opportunity to pass without assuring you of the pleasure it has given Miss Terry and myself to be associated with so excellent an institution as the School of Expression.

It seems to me the danger in teaching elocution, although I do not claim to be an authority, is that some formal and artificial method should supersede nature.

But in this school you seek to avoid that danger by the recognition of the principle that all good speaking comes from the right action of the mind.

For the same reason, good acting is not declamation, but the expression of character; and the actor's aim is not to imitate this style or that, but to cultivate his own resources of impersonation.

I cannot but thank you, for Miss Terry and myself, with all my heart, for the attention you have given our reading, and I sincerely hope that some substantial benefit to this excellent institution will be the result.”

In address at the reading given for the School, 1888.

«The] School of Expression is the center of noble ideals, not only for the public speaker but also for literature and education itself. . . . [Its] training is fundamentally one looking toward the liberation of the self from the restrictions set by self-consciousness, whether of soul, or muscle, and the training of the body to express accurately the spiritual experience. ... There could be no better appropriation of funds than to endow generously the school that will perpetuate these ideals."

Dean of the University of Chicago, in “The World To-day."

66 Too much stress can hardly be laid on the author's groundprinciple, that where a method aims to regulate the modulations of the voice by rules, inconsistencies and lack of organic coherence begin to take the place of that sense of life which lies at the heart of every true product of art. On the contrary, where vocal expression is studied as a manifestation of the process of thinking, there results the true energy of the student's powers and the more natural unity of the complex elements of his expression."

DR. LYMAN ABBOTT in the “Outlook."
