Inscribed on the front free endpaper to Harvard classmate, Charles Walker Andrews, with a quotation in Latin from Horace. Tipped in are two letters from Sedgwick to Andrews, and a manuscript list in Andrews' hand of those who attended the dinner, above which he notes that there were 34 from the class still alive and 19 at the dinner.
