Go to Buffalo to see Bishop Coxe and Dr. Shelton about our endowment movement. We went to Bishop Coxe’s and talked over matters, particularly the endowment effort. Bishop Coxe agreed to preach a sermon in the Churches of Buffalo about New Years, and then we should go to work in earnest. We talked about Mr. Douglas and the Chaplaincy. Bishop Coxe thought it important to soothe Mr. Douglas, and keep matters quiet till after we have secured our hundred thousand dollars by the proposed effort. I said I was willing to let matters go on as they had gone – as if nothing had happened, or to have the Board agree what part I should take in Chapel service, or to leave it to the Bishop to determine. Beyond that I would not go.
