Prof. Wheeler called to see me before the noon recitation, and had a full talk with me about his being intoxicated at the Soldiers’ dinner in Linden Hall Saturday afternoon. He expressed the deepest sorrow and offered to place his resignation in my hands in order to relieve the College of the odium. I told him I would decline to accept it. If he would only resolve to do well for the future and avoid drink, I would stand by him, and uphold him; and he must wear out all traces of his evil reputation by a new record. He seemed very grateful to me, and promised nevermore to err in this respect.
