Attend Chapel service at 10:30 and sit in my pew. I was really detained, so that it was inconvenient for me to get in in time to take part in the service; but I have made up my mind not to do so while Mr. Williams remains with us, (he leaves October 1st. to become rector of the Church of the Messiah in Boston – to succeed Bishop Randall!) and whilst the relations between the President and the Chaplain are subject to the consideration of a committee of the Board of Trustees, as is the case. I went into the vestry and spoke with Mr. Williams after the service. He said he expected me in to take part – that this was one of the occasions on which he expected me to take part. I told him, after his request put in to the Board of Trustees, to be allowed to officiated alone, I certainly would not officiate again till that question was settled.
