Anderson described the assignment in his first theme of October 2, 1886: “The ‘daily themes’ in English twelve should be dropped through the Instructor’s door, No. 18 Gray’s, on the day on which they are written, or before ten o’clock on the morning of the next day. As the name indicates they are to be written on every day, excepting a college holiday, and a colloquial, interesting rather than academic, style should be sought. The themes should be folded in the regular manner, and on the left-hand fold should be written the name of the writer and the date of the writing. Some regular time ought to be chosen for writing the daily theme as thus regularity is gained and the writing of the theme will become a habit more quickly.”
