At the opening of the convention the Bishop announced a committee of fourteen voted yesterday, of which I was the third named. We got leave and retired to the Chapel and discussed deliberated for about two hours, and agreed on a report, which Dr. Shelton, the chairman, was to draw up. We met again at two, considered, amended and signed it. The rules were suspended and its discussion taken up.  The Bishop came and opened the evening session and then called me to take the Chair. I occupied it till eleven, when we adjourned. We discussed the mode of raising the Assistant Bishop’s salary, the amount, and finally, the time of going into the election, which was fixed for ten to-morrow. We had very animated discussion and an exciting time. I felt that I had a dancing team to guide.
