At 7 P.M. acted as Chaplain and President at the first meeting of the DeLancey Association – to consist of students looking forward to Holy Orders – for the purpose of aiding and encouraging each other in maintaining a high Christian character, and of imparting information to each other on the state of missions, and of the Church, &c. I opened it with the Lord’s Prayer and Collects, and we sang a hymn. We adopted a constitution and some by-laws. There were present Southgate, Wells, Neely and Brown (seniors), Bostwick and Van Voast (juniors) and others.

It was an interesting meeting. Exercises were assigned for the next meeting – an essay from Wells and one from Southgate for the meeting four weeks hence. We propose to meet every two weeks on Friday evening. I hope for much good from this Association.
