February 15th, 1866

Go down to the office of Trinity Vestry and devote much time to consulting the records of the Society referred to above. Went to see Dr. Dix at the Rectory, by appointment, in the evening, to talk about our College affairs. He thinks the Vestry will at once give us leave to charge tuition and room-rent. As to further endowment, he says it will be the policy of the Vestry, as he thinks, to first pay off their debts ($800,000) and then to make provision for the want of the parish-schools, missions, &c., and that it will be two years before their affairs will be adjusted, arising out of the falling in of leases in 1866, so that they will clearly know where they stand. So that things do not look very promising for our getting aid for the College.
