"The following paper was read before the Society of Arts of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology on the evening of Dec. 21, 1865 ... It is hoped that in its present shape it may not only serve to make the character of the proposed course of architectural instruction more widely known ... but, especially, that it may be the means of securing for the scheme in advance the criticism to which it must at some time be subjected ... The architects, and others, to whom this pamphlet is sent, will accordingly do a great kindness to the writer ... if they will favor him with the opinions they may form ..."--Note, p. [3].
