Bishop Neely writes he is very glad I am going to Hartford – says I have decided “wisely and for my happiness”.  He is now glad he is a New Englander and to have me near at hand, and at the head of our New England College.

Confer with the Misses Bridge about a plan of going to Canandaigua to establish themselves in a female seminary there, and give it a Church character. I advised them to be sure that they can work harmoniously with Mr. Richards, who proposes to remain as he is now, a partner in the concern, and to carry on its financial affairs, board the students, &c.; and that the Board of Trustees, a majority of whom were Congregationalists, be so organized as not to hamper them.
