Meet Bishop Coxe and Dr. Shelton, who have come to a meeting of our Board to-morrow night. I took Bishop Coxe to the Miss Bridges’ to tea, and to talk over his school plans with them.  He wishes them to take in hand a great school Havana for girls, in Charles Cook’s People’s College, which E.W. Cook, the chief heir to that property, has agreed to give Bishop Coxe for that end. I asked his reasons for introducing the occasional prayers before the General Thanksgiving. He said the ancient usage of New York, and the fitness of things – the case being a disputed one. Bishop Hobart always followed this practice.
