We met in the old Chapel to hold an extemporaneous celebration of Shakespeare’s tercentenary birthday. There was a considerable number of citizens present besides the Faculty and students. I presided, read prayers, and made a little address, then called on Dr. Wilson who also made an address. I then called out Prof. Russell at whose instance the celebration was gotten up; and he read from Henry the VIII, of Woolsey’s fall and from “Much Ado” &c.
