The Trustees elected Eliphaz Fay of Poughkeepsie N.Y. president. The board also noted the death of the Rev. Chaplin, president of the College from 1822-1833, and resolved to “entertain a grateful remembrance of the able, untiring and successful labor of the late President Chaplin, and cordially tender our sympathies to his afflicted family in their present bereavement.”
