College is going into operation very quietly. I called on Mr. Williams to-day. He explained, at my request, his view as to what the President should do in the Chapel; it was this: to assist in the Holy Communion on Communion Sundays, to take part in the service at the opening of the term, on the occasion of the visit of the Bishop, and on any other extraordinary occasion. At all other times the Chaplain should be alone. He said he did not expect the Trustees to take any action on his request, contained in his report, and that he was very sorry he made the report; that it was “a blunder” on his part; that very likely he might, at another time, desire the President to officiate with him; and he might also desire to take part in the instruction, though in his report he had expressed his desire not to do so.
