Easter Sunday.

The College bell rang at half past five. Service began at six. Mr. Williams conducted it according to Bishop Coxe’s scheme, which he used to have at St. John’s, Hartford. It was very jubilant and exhilarating. It began with a carol written by Bishop Southgate. The music was excellent – in good taste, and no failure. Mr. Williams gave a short address – an Easter Greeting, extempore – very joyous and animated. The Chapel was beautifully adorned with flowers, font, altar and screen, (a cross adorned with flowers surmounting the screen with fine effect) by the taste and care of Van Voast. There were perhaps twenty ladies out and half of the students, or a little more.

            At quarter to eleven we had the full Morning Service and a sermon by the Chaplain.
