 New York.

I went after breakfast to see Dr. Dix, to find what had been done in reference to Mr. Neely, on whose behalf I had written to him for second assistancy of Trinity Chapel. Dr. Dix informed me that he had nominated him to the Vestry. On learning that he was in Orange, New Jersey, he expressed a desire to have him come and pass a Sunday in New York to satisfy the Vestry about his preaching powers. So I agreed to ask him to do so. Mr. Neely came with Mr. Bush at four o’clock to see me. It was awkward about Mr. Bush, whose plan of spending the summer in Geneva had been knocked in the head by Mr. Douglas. But I took Neely into the back room and explained it to him.
