Excerpt from In Memoriam; Howard Lord Morehouse: A Father's Loving Tribute

On the lst of August, 1890, he entered the University of the South, the present co-ad jutor Bishop of Tennessee then being the Vice Chancellor. It was because of my acquaint ance with, and knowledge of Dr. Gailor, that led me to choose the University of the South as the school best suited for Howard's course of study, and I wish to add here, that the choice could not have been better made. As soon as the prescribed limit was passed, Howard was made a Gownsman. He passed one year very successfully at the University, and com menced on his second year, when he was afflicted by a disease of the eyes which necessi tated his withdrawal from school. This was a bitter disappointment to us all, but doubt less was one of the blessings which God oftensends in the way of affliction. For a year, he was under the care of Dr. Schneider, a most eminent oculist of Milwaukee, who finally pronounced him fully restored; and who told him that had he not come thus early for treatment his eyesight might have been per manently injured, if not wholly lost. Dur ing the year at home, he was debarred from study and could only read a little each day. He busied himself daily in the Church Book Store, and filled his place in the choir of All Saints' Cathedral; he also frequently served the Priest at the Altar at the celebration of Holy Communion, both on Sundays and other days as his services were needed. By appoint ment of the Bishop he became Commandant of the Cadets at the Cathedral Institute, and attended to his duties with the same earnest ness that characterized all his work. He was also the moving spirit among the young peo ple in preparing entertainments for the benefit of the various departments of Church work.
