The Club Rooms, a handsome expression of the appreciation and interest of the Vice-President and Superintendent of Construction, Hon. Ausburn Birdsall, whose sagacity and energy are a power to the institution constitute an attractive feature of the house.
They are substantially and appropriately furnished, and the walls, tastefully frescoed, are adorned with fine steel engravings, photographs, and chromos, presented by thoughtful friends of the institution, the collection comprising many portraits of English and American men of letters.
There is pressing need of a well-chosen library, of not less than a thousand volumes; and if any happy reader of the “Atlantic,” moved by a spirit of benevolent emulation, would be flattered by the sense of a good gift judiciously bestowed, let him or her send to the secretary of the Ollapod Club a box or parcel, no matter how light, the weight will be in the gracious obligation, of “books which are books.”
