Hartford.

Bishop Williams and the Professors had requested the students to be in front of the College Chapel at five o’clock, when I was to be presented to them. We all went out from the Vestry and the Bishop presented me to the students in a very cordial speech. Prof. Brocklesby then spoke in like terms – commending me warmly to the students as one who was entirely worthy of their confidence – one who knew every rope of the ship – one who understood the whole structure of the College from turret to foundation. The students cheered heartily. When I ended speaking, they were presented to me individually by Prof. Brocklesby.
