then I should not assume the full personal responsibility of the charge.

But if the Vestry desire, I will assume the direction of the Parish from and after the 18th day of October; providing for all parochial duties; and devoting the time between that and my Institution† to such consultation and thought as may best secure the great end in view.

“ Earnestly asking the aid and comfort of your prayers; and with the sincere assurance that my constant aim will be the restoration and perpetuation of amity and harmony among ourselves; and with an humble reliance on Him, Who alone maketh men to be of one mind in an house, that He—the Great Shepherd and Bishop of our Souls, may bless this decision, to the advancement of His Church, and the salvation of His souls.

“I remain very sincerely and faithfully, your friend and servant for Jesus' sake,

The Rev. Wm. Croswell Doane, in his Memoir of his father (pp. 45, 46, thus describes the scene; “Doctors and Masters and Bachelors and undergraduates, with their distinctive gowns and hoods, were about the Bishop. And the first thing, was to kneel in silent prayer. Then, when the music stopped, he stood erect, and bowed. Auditores docti ac benevoli, hi juvenes nostri, primam lauream ambientes, vos, per Oratorem, salutare cupiunt: quod, illis a vobis concessum, fidunt.' And then taking his seat, with a bow to the Salutatorian: “Orator salutatorius, in linguâ Latinâ ascendat.' This was the signal for each, 'Orator, in lingua Gallica, Orator in lingua Vernaculâ ; Orator Valedictorius.' When all was done the sixth form stood before him; and turning to the audience, cap-in-hand, he said "Hosce, pueros, olim, de nostrâ formâ sexta, hodie in classem nostram, junior dictam, admittere proponimus, eosque induěre togâ virili, Academia Nostræ.' And they knelt for his favorite blessing, 'Unto God's gracious mercy, we commit you.' After this, the procession went directly to the Church. Seated in his Episcopal Chair, drawn out to the choir steps, still in Academic dress, with the Rector and Senior Professor on either side, and the candidates for degrees before him; after the Bidding Prayer and Litany, [see p. 488] he delivered his Baccalaureate. This done, the conferring of degrees began. Standing up, he addressed the Trustees, Curatores honorandi, ac reverendi; juvenes, quos coram vobis, videtis, publico examini, secundum hujus academiæ leges, subjecti; habiti fuerunt omnino digni, honoribus academicis exornari; vobis igitur comprobantibus, illos ad gradum petitum, toto animo admittam. And when the answer came from the President, Comprobamus;' he took his seat, put on his Oxford cap, and one by one, as the boys knelt before him, he gave them their degree. "Ad honorem Domini nostri Jesu Christi; ad profectum Ecclesiæ Sacrosanctæ, et omnium studiorum bonorum ; do tibi (putting a Greek Testament in their hands) licentiam legendi, docendi, disputandi, et cætera omnia faciendi; quæ ad gradum Baccalaurei [or, Magistri; or, Baccalaurei in literis sacris] in Artibus, pertinent; cujus hocce diploma sit testimonium, in Nomine, Patris et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti. Amen.' And each time, he lifted his cap at the mention of the Triune Name. The Service ended, always, with the celebration of the Holy Eucharist.”
