Had a letter from Nugent Wade, expressing his joy at the prospect of peace and harmony; though ‘fraternization’ is to be deferred till after the revised Statutes shall have been approved. Asks me whether I did not offer to retract my resignation at St Columba’s, if the Trustees would announce officially that Dr Elrington’s letter was not official, (for it bore every mark of being so) and what answer I got? I replied that Sewell communicated it to them in a letter to Todd, but he could never get any answer. This question made me draw out a brief but accurate account of the circumstances, which led to my retirement; as also, a statement of the grounds of my discontinuing all friendly intercourse with Todd. So now he may be master of the entire case. This took me hours to do, which, added to three choral services in the day, made me feel very much fagged at night.
