Several of the boys being now quite old enough for confirmation, – I have written to the Bishop, to ask him how it could best be managed. A letter from him this morning to say how fully he agrees with all I said, – and that he would confirm in our own chapel. This is very kind of him, and precisely the arrangement we should like best. He proposes, however, some day early in December, – which, I think, would be too soon, – so I have written to him to say no. It seems very desirable to bring the boys to Communion immediately, – all of which requires more time for preparation than this would allow. Besides the proximity of the examination and the holidays would cause much destruction of mind, at a time when the mind ought to be kept particularly tranquil.
