Valedictory is an address given by L.M. Montgomery’s classmate James H. Stevenson at the end of the 1893–94 school year at Prince of Wales College in Charlottetown, where she was undertaking her teacher training. As she reported in her journal, Stevenson persuaded her to write it for him because he didn’t have time to do it himself. The full text was published in the Daily Examiner of Charlottetown and appears in A Name for Herself: Selected Writings, 1891–1917.
