Excerpt from Silver Jubilee Memorial: Convent of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart, Oakland, Cal;, 1868-1893
This little Memorial commends itself to the pupils of the Convent of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart in their moments of pleasant retrospection. Pursuing the paths and by-paths of years, culling here and there a flower of perfumed memory, it will lend a charm we trust, to their leisure hours, while it cannot fail to interest those who have seen their Alma Mater's young and vigorous life culminate in a grand Jubilee demonstration.
No event of the past is fraught with keener emotions or purer joys than a visit to the old homestead, dim as the dear old relic may appear in the twilight of receding years. So a ramble through our school days is attended with a corresponding degree of pleasure, blurred though our favorite pictures are, by the cares and anxieties of life, or by the shadows of time, which are lengthening and deepening.
But lo !a flash from memory's sun - and the whole scene is aglow - radiant with light, color and beauty. There are joys and sorrows, struggles and defeats, high aims and lofty endeavors - here, a wise counsel, which like a golden thread, has woven itself into our years. Now, a hallowed life, which has set its seal upon our own, again, an influence, whose power for good is abiding.
Friends outside the school circle, of whose names we are justly proud, have come into this memory banquet, and graced the board by their genial sympathy, their beauty of speech, and melody of song. We value the contribution, both for its intrinsic worth and for the gracious kindness which suggested it.
We leave you, therefore, dear pupils, in communion with this messenger of pleasant souvenirs, trusting to the generosity we have so well known in the past, that you will take it to your hearts in kindly approval, and still more kindly welcome.
