To Dr. Theodore W. Dwight:

A few plain words expressive of generous regard toward one we hold in the kindliest reverence cannot but carry conviction, to him of whom they are spoken, of their deep sincerity.

And in presenting these tributes from eminent graduates of Columbia Law School, I perform a duty, the pleasure of which can be measured only by the sympathy, tenderness, and love which your students have invariably and will always entertain for you. The cherished memories of the years spent under your guidance are sweet to all.

Others would have tendered their tributes of praise to this testimonial but for the necessities of their business engagements. It is but fair to them to record that without exception they expressed their loyalty and gratitude to their friend and professor, and deeply regretted their inability to acknowledge in this way their appreciation of that patience and gentleness which you have ever accorded to your students. The fruits of that patience and gentleness are distributed over our entire country, and will long remain a testimonial to your rare influence.

It is in this spirit that these tributes are presented to you. And in the name of all those whom you have taught—manliness as well as law —I wish you health and happiness for many years to come. As you have shown kindliness toward others, so may your life be lengthened.

Frederic Joseph Swift.

Columbia Law School,
May 10, 1891.
