Description Frid. 5. Fine warm&g morning, Prest Y. out early A. Lyman called, Bishop Hoagland with Brors Horne & S. W. Richards called to know whether they might change the plan of school now being built there; also on various Business Dr. J. M. Bernhisel B. Quigley, G. Bartholomew, Gen. Woodard &c. At 1.30 pm we had a heavy shower of hail, & yet the air was warm, thermometer standing at [blank] afternoon warm. Prest Y. part of the time in office & part with his family. Prest.

His motion for anlendnlent was ruled out-of-order. Congressional Globe, 114: 836. With such proposals being made in Congress, it is no Ivonder that his speech was the subject of concern.
