The Bishop attended our morning Chapel service, and at the close announced that he would give early in June a course of lectures on English Literature to the students of the College.

We heard to-day of Rev. Dr. Gregory’s death. He died at Syracuse. He was the first student that ever graduated at Hobart College – a most excellent and worthy man and greatly useful in his day. I must try and go to his funeral.

Yesterday we read in the Messenger that Dr. Payne was elected President of Trinity College. I sat down last night and wrote him a letter of congratulations. To-day I learn that the statement is not true. How provoking!

Eight years to-day since I came to live in Geneva.
