It repents me of this Hartford business somewhat. Talk with —- concerning Hartford matters frequently, that is, concerning those whom I formerly knew in that city. I return to the best God great thanks for all His great kindness upon this day. May he grant to me and my wife, daughter, mother, friends, –to all, life and eternal happiness of His infinite goodness.

A letter from Prof. Pynchon. He said that nothing would be done at once concerning the election of a president. He thought the trustees would do something in a short time; but that he would be prepared to leave the college if the affair should not be carried on in a manner which satisfied him. It was plain that he urgently desired the honor for himself. Hence his manner of writing to me — otherwise inexplicable.
