Letter from Prof. Huntington of Trinity College informing me of the true state of affairs. Prof. Pynchon says that he wishes for himself the office of president.  Hence his desire for delay. Prof. Brocklesby has performed this duty of president for $500 per annum. He urges me—persuades me to accept the office of president of Trinity College.

Students had bonfires in front of Trinity Hall, and kept them up till the middle of the night. I went out and forbade them, but in vain; for when I had gone away they renewed their fires. Horns were blown. The campus was restored to quiet several times.
