VOL. 1          NASHOTAH HOUSE, JANUARY, 1884.          NO. 2

Extracts From Bishop Kemper's Diary in Regard to Beginnings of Nashotah.

Letter to J. H. H. Sep. 25, 1811.--"Mr. M. gives $100., Mr. A. $100., S. $200. Will you put up the necessary buildings, trusting the money will be forthcoming by spring, as I will collect it after Gen. Con.; or will you come on yourself for it; or will you remain here for the winter, and devote the present money to purchasing horses, food, etc?"

Letter to A. C. C., Nov. 12.--"I entirely approve of the plan, for in my estimation it (the cause) is a very sacred one, and if duly cherished at the present time, will open a new, primitive, and most successful mode of making known to the careless and the ignorant the blessed truths of the Gospel of Peace. It has my entire and deliberate approbation. The sacrifices voluntarily and cheerfully encountered by this little band of brothers for the sake of our Divine Master and His Church, deserve, and ought at once to receive, the cordial co-operation of every Christian."

Feb. 3,1842--Arrived in Milwaukee safely by 4, p. M. Kindly received by Mr. Hull. Breck called; enquiries about future journeys; saw Hobart, who had just returned from Green Bay.

Feb. 4--With Hobart in a cutter to Prairieville (now Waukesha); long talks. Breck went in a wagon which I had hired; snow melting. At P. village by 2 o'clock, at the home of the three, in one room full of boxes, garments, books, etc. Breck went to make an appointment for me at Lisbon (now Sussex.) Called with Hobart on Dakins, Baestons, etc; returned to tea. After Breck's return we had a conclave, the result that Hobart goes immediately to collect $5,000., to buy land and erect buildings for fifty students. Adams thinks that there will be thirty students looking to the ministry by fall, if they can soon be received.

Feb. 5--Adams started to fulfil an appointment at Elkhorn to-morrow. I went with Breck 10 miles to Lisbon and preached at James Weaver's house, to a small but attentive congregation, all of whom kneeled; from England. Returned by 2 o'clock. Writing, conversing, and preparing for to-morrow.

Feb. 6--A clear day; two full congregations. (Sunday at Prairieville). Confirmed six, and twenty-four received the Eucharist. Breck and Hobart were both with me and delighted with the events of the day; both in surplices; a handsome Communion set used which Beaseley presented to Nashotah. (Mr. Breck, with the permission of Mr. Adams and the Bishop, took this to Minnesota, as Nashotah then had the set they now use, given by ladies of St. John's Chapel. New York.)

Feb. 7--The Bishop went with Mr. Hobart to Milwaukee, and the latter started for New York, by way of Detroit. Canada, and Black Rock; the Bishop going north to Green Bay, Duck Creek, etc.

March 4--At Prairie village by dark. Had an evening service, and preached.

March 5, '42--Off, after an early breakfast. Adams and I walked some miles; stopt at Troy for dinner; roads pretty good on the prairies and in the openings. Twenty-two miles to Troy; ten to Col. Bowman's; met Gen. Shelden and Gov. Doty; time for tea; in dark to Church two miles; full congregations in a school house; had been waiting for us for an hour; many children present.

March 6--I staid at the Col.'s last night, Adams and Breck at Dr. Gray's. They came over early in the morning; eight miles to Elk-horn. We had three full services; six confirmed; a Methodist requested of Mr. Breck as a particular favour that he might attend his catechetical class. The missionaries have classes of candidates for Baptism, Lord's Supper, etc. At daybreak intelligence was brought that Col. B.'s only child died last night in tits, a little boy, who was with them at church yesterday. We made an early start. Adams left us, after going a few miles, to attend the funeral and visit in the neighborhood; may not be at home for two or three days. To Eagle Prairie, twenty miles; at------'s House; he is well disposed; is from Yorkshire; the settlement English, all brought up in the Church, but some unacquainted with the service. The benches were well filled; an intelligent Englishman of the settlement came up and spoke of the benefit of an adult school. The number and noise of the children present. Ten miles to Fountain Run. Service in the school house, and confirmed one. Ten miles home, (Praireville); dark, muddy, by ten o'clock.

March 8--At rather a late hour, Breck and I started on horseback; 10 miles, stopt for dinner at Paddock's, and found we were one hour late. Galloped our horses five miles, and found a crowded congregation waiting for us in a schoolhouse on Baxter's Prairie, (now Summit). I preached; congregation intelligent, and joined in the service. Splendid ride home, lighted by the burning prairie; there by nine.

The Bishop left the next morning for Racine, Mr. Breck probably accompanying him.

The Bishop returned to Wisconsin in Sept., and, in a Convocation held at Milwaukee, examined Rev. Messrs. Adams and Breck for Priest's Orders. On the 22d, the Bishop joined the Nashotah missionaries on a visitation to their stations.

Sept. 26--Went four miles with them into the forest from Prairieville; a schoolhouse in the midst of the timber; no dwelling in sight. I robed in the wagon, where the Elements were prepared. Went in with them. All united in the service, though not many present. Good singing, led by Hobart. I baptized two children, administered the Eucharist; the whole service solemn and interesting. Returned to Mr. Paddock's, ten miles from Prairieville, arriving there after sunset.

Sept. 27--A fine day. Started with Mr. Paddock and family for Summit, five miles. Breck had called before to change the arrangements of the day, and to have confirmation instead of the Eucharist. The school room was full. I baptized two female adults, and confirmed them and Mrs. Paddock. Then went to Nashotah. Dr. Douseman called there. A small frame house, whitewashed; one room; beds separated by a curtain; books, kitchen utensils, etc. We walked over grounds; are beautiful. The lake is a fine one, very clear water, probably not deep. Where there is no marsh and facing the lake and the west, a small building is to be erected, and will be finished the middle of next month. It is to contain five apartments. It is probably 30 feet above the lake. Further back is a plateau, 100 feet from the lake, a fine place for a church and burying ground. The timber is white oak. Saw two cedars on the lake. We consulted on the ground. Breck, at the request of the other two, to be the head. They hope gradually to increase the school. Will now take day scholars; they wish to goon gradually and sure. Their final anticipations are great; indeed they think in a few years they will have 500 communicants in a circle fifteen miles distant from the centre. We rode to Oconomowoc, five miles; the Paddocks there. Sun-set before our service was over. Returned with the Paddocks to their house; there at eight.

Oct. 1--Off by eight from Milwaukee. Lunch at Lisbon House, 16 miles. Dusty; fine cool day; woods beautiful; lost our way; stopt at Parsonage, (Mission House of Nashotah). At church rather late. Preached and administered confirmation to eleven. Much fatigued.

Oct. 2--Finley called upon me before breakfast in a fog, having come for me from Douseman's. Off by 8, and at Lisbon by 10:30; a deeply interesting day. Worship in a barn; chancel, choir, robes, etc. Very full. Three services, at intervals of ten minutes. Did not leave the church till all was over.

On the 3d of October, the Bishop started with Mr. Breck and Mr. Adams for Duck Creek and Green Bay; those being the only places in the then Territory where there were church buildings; and the two Deacons were to receive Priest's orders on the following Sunday at Hobart Church, Duck Creek. The journey took three days. One night was spent at the present site of Fond du Lac, at the house of Dr. Darling. The night before reaching Green Bay they lost their way; were benighted, the Bishop and Mr. Breck walking before for some miles to pick out the road for their driver. Were given hospitality by a poor family, living in one room, and owning but one spoon, which had to be used in turn. After a pleasant visit to the Rev. Mr. Akerly, then Rector at Green Bay, and at the old Mission House, where the Matron still remained, they went on Saturday, the 8th, to Duck Creek, and were that night the guests of the Rev. Solomon Davis. On the 10th, the two received Priest's Orders by the hands of Bishop Kemper, Mr. Akerly, Mr. Davis, and Mr. Cadle uniting.

The Bishop hired another team to return to Milwaukee, leaving the one they had come up in to bring down "pine and fir trees, and boxes containing the bell," (the same one used every day since at Nashotah,) "and some school books of the Green Bay Mission," which had been given to them. The Bishop, on his return, stopt for a short time at Nashotah, sleeping that night at Delafield. Thence to Milwaukee, and in a few days left the Territory. The Mission now, October 13, 1842, consisted of the three Priests, Rev. J. L. Breck, Wm. Adams, and J. H. Hobart; and the two last had now requested the Bishop to make Mr. Breck their head.


"What is your name? asked Bishop Kemper of a young man who was slightly "uppish." "Mr. --," replied the young swell. "Ah indeed," said the Bishop, "mine is Jackson Kemper."

An infidel imbued with a great idea of himself once told Bishop Rich. Wilmer: "But that creed of yours, I can't swallow that." "The trouble is," said the Bishop, "not with the creed, but with the swallow."

The following is vouched for. Rev. Mr. Pullen, '75 was in the public store on the day of his arriving to take charge at Elkhorn. A number of rough back-woodsmen were airing their bad breath and worse language, when one, rather old in appearance, swaggered up to the new rector, and abruptly asked, "Be you the new 'Piscopal parson?" "Yes, if you mean--"Now look hear, parson, I kind a got a liken' for your Church,--might jine it." "Well sir." "Now parson look a here, I'd like to have a race with you about this 'ere. You beat me choppin' wood to-morrow and I'll give you all I chop, fur the Church, and I'll jine the Church, and plank down regular too!" "All right sir."

The next morning Mr. Pullen was up at work at four. A little before six the old man appeared and immediately put in with vigor, for his rival had gotten a good start; at noon he couldn't stop for dinner, but hammered away as if his life depended on it. By this time the whole neighborhood was on the spot, and excited, as you can imagine. Away worked the "parson" and his rival, but when six came, and the "parson" was about half a cord ahead, the old man said, "Well parson, I guess you beat me." He was true to his promises however, and Mr. Pullen had in truth a good start.

WE understand that St. Paul's Church, Milwaukee, is to have a memorial window to Bishop Kemper.

REV. R. H. Weller, of the Brotherhood, assisted the Rev. Mr. Dumbell, rector of St. James', Milwaukee, several times in the services of Christmas-tide.

CHRISTMAS SERVICES at St. Athanasius (Nashotah Mission,) and at Pine Lake, Delafield, and Hartland, were appropriate and beautiful. There was midnight celebration, Christmas Eve in the Chapel.

Endorsement of the Faculty.

The undersigned cordially recommend to the Alumni and friends of Nashotah House, the paper now issued as the Nashotah Scholiast. It originates in the laudable zeal and energy of undergraduates of Nashotah House. Its editorial matter and contributions from students will, under the censorship of the Faculty, be guarded against unbecoming controversy, but within this limitation will represent only the student mind of the Institution. Its personal items and selected matter, it may lie hoped, will be full of interest.


Rt. Rev. E. R. WELLES, S. T. D.,
Rev. A. D. COLE, D. D.,
Rev. WM. ADAMS, D. D.,
Rev. T. M. RILEY, M. A.

THE following may be taken as authoritative answers to all inquiries respecting the future of Nashotah. From the OCONOMOWOC LOCAL.


Mr. Editor:--In the Local of December 14 there was published an extract from the Inter-Ocean, stating that the Bishops of the Northwest had decided to remove Nashotah House to Chicago. Permit me to say, the question of removing Nashotah House has not yet been considered by the Trustees. No reason is yet known to them why Nashotah House should not continue in Wisconsin the noble work to which it has been devoted for so many years in the past. The magnificent gift of Dr. Solomon C. Wheeler, of Chicago, of nearly a quarter of a million of dollars for the purposes of theological education, deserved, and has received, the grateful recognition of the Bishop of Chicago and of the Bishops of neighboring Dioceses. Like munificence would keep Nashotah House permanently where it is. The two institutions, in any event, will be friendly and possibly very helpful to each other. The statement of the Inter-Ocean, at least, is unfounded.

Faithfully yours,


Bishop of Fond du Lac, and Secretary of the Executive Committee of Trustees of Nashotah House.

Bishop Welles, in the January number of the Wisconsin Calendar, speaks as follows:

"In regard to the future of Nashotah, in view of the opening of a Theological Seminary in Chicago, it can only be said that the work at Nashotah, for the present, will be carried on as usual: it may be, eventually, under changed conditions, but it will be work for the Church. As yet, no action has been taken by the Trustees, nor any policy indicated; but when the Board meets, while no interest of Nashotah will be overlooked, that will be done which in the judgment of the Trustees is best for the interests of the Church in the Northwest."

THE success of the NASHOTAH SCHOLIAST is assured, for the first year at least. But we want it more than a success. We are willing, as you see, to go much more than half way, but our hearts must be cheered by real response from every Alumnus and friend of our school and of us. We rejoice in knowing that our readers are not of that generality of mankind that dampens so effectually youthful ardor and earnest work, and so we confidently expect before next writing to have on our lists every available Alumnus, and that others will join the goodly number of subscribing friends who have encouraged us on many sides. Our subscribers may expect soon to become possessors of a handsome lithograph of Bishop Kemper, from a picture taken shortly before his death. We regret our inability to publish in full, Bishop Clarkson's splendid address. Our next issue will probably contain the first of the College letters.

Nashotah Close and Chapel

--George Bush, of Milwaukee, spent Sunday, 13th inst, with us, as a guest of Lemon, '85.

--Frank and Rich Bright, students of Racine College, recently spent a few days here, as guests of Jackson Kemper.

--The Rt. Rev. Father, the Bishop of Northern California, recently spent a day at "Nemahbin", as the guest of Mrs. Bloodgood. He made a short address to the students after Evening Prayer.

--Contributions from Alumni and friends of Nashotah will be welcome. Our limited space, however, requires that the articles be brief. We also count largely upon Alumni help in increasing our circulation.

--Shubert, '84, has been ordered by his physician, to rest from study. He departed for the Bermudas, a few days ago. That his trip may be pleasant, and restore him to complete health, is the sincere wish of the SCHOLIAST.

--As many of the students as are Candidates for Orders were Matriculated the 10th, just before early Communion. Bishop Brown made them a very happy address, and then assisted Bishop Welles in the celebration of the Eucharist.

--Professor Gold, of Racine College, is delivering to the students a very interesting course of lectures on Liturgies. His lectures show a thorough knowledge and comprehensive view of the subject. He gives the Liturgy its rightful and important position, as the connecting link between the Church of the present and of the past.

--The last solemn rites of Mother Church were performed over the remains of the late Commodore Whiting, of Milwaukee, at Nashotah Chapel, on Thursday, the 17th inst. After the services at the church, the procession preceded by Rev. Drs. Adams and Kemper, took its way to the grave yard, where the body of the venerable officer was laid in its final resting place.

-- The Churchman, the Living Church, and a number of other papers, have given the SCHOLIAST kindly notice in their columns. We are especially indebted to that very bright and worthy sheet, which interests alike young and old, the Young Churchman, of Milwaukee, for heralding our first issue, and afterwards giving us such a generous Godspeed. Lack of space, precludes extracts from any of these notices.

Church Schools and Colleges.

It is intended to render this section of The Scholiast valuable by publishing "budgets" from St. Augustine's, Canterbury, and all the theological schools in the land which are in communion with the Church. By issuing each month letters from some one of our Seminaries it will be happily practicable to get a general knowledge, and so, interest in all our institutions. Indeed, one can readily imagine the good resulting from a realization of our earnest wish in this matter. We anticipate kindly co-operation in our endeavor.

GEN. THEO. SEMINARY.--Dr. Richey celebrated the 25th anniversary of his marriage, a short time ago. All the students seem to have profound admiration and love for this learned historian.

SEABURY.--The Institution sustained a great loss in the death of its Warden, Dr. Chase, which took place recently.

TRINITY.--Bishop Knickerbacker is an Alumnus of Trinity. He sent the SCHOLIAST his good wishes.

RACINE COLLEGE.--Dr. Falk, Prof, of Modern Languages, is very seriously ill. He is a remarkably fine historian, and was at one time a member of the German Parliament. Esteemed and loved by all who know him, his loss would be very great to the Church in Wisconsin.

HOBART.--The Catalogue shows that 16 were graduated last June; and 14 seniors in the Classical department at present.

SEWANEE--Has its long vacation of eight weeks in the winter, lasting from the middle of December into April.


A Luncheon and a Supper.

In 1880, in New York, at the meeting of the General Convention, the graduates of Nashotah and the friends of the Institution had a luncheon at the Park Hotel.

In 1883, Nashotah men were plentiful in Philadelphia, and they had a supper at the "Aldine," all to themselves. They could pride themselves on a Bishop as their President, and an ex-Professor as their honored guest: and not only this; they dug up a "Stout" man from Arkansaw, who had gone with Dr. Breck and others on the famous expedition to Green Bay and parts adjacent, and when the Stout man got through his story, a Weller man than he stood up and told how he came to Nashotah when this party was away, and what a sight was presented to his vision on their return.

Dr. Egar made a speech, and so did Shaw and Birdsall; all filled brimful of recollections of old times. Sweet responded to the toast of "Nashotah," and did it well; and Woodle to that of "Professor Adams." Blanchet responded to "Nashotah Men in the Foreign Field," and Wright to "Nashotah Men as Missionaries at Home." The "Hadji," when called to respond to the "Old Boys," spoke well and feelingly of those who had grown old in the service, and of those who are at rest.

Vaulx spoke of the Departure in 1861, and of the Southern students. This was not a toast, but it had been twenty-five years since he had seen the old faces; and while it may be invidious to draw comparisons, this was the most effective speech of the evening. Barton, of Easton, sent his regrets. What a noble fellow he is! loveable and greathearted, and always true to Nashotah. Wood and Weil were present at the feast; "Joe" not quite so full of music as in the olden time, and "Elias" calm and stately as ever. W. P. TenBroeck represented Wisconsin in part. Fond du Lac sent Dafter, Vernor, and Wright.

Kenny, of Cuba, made a short speech when called on. Webster, of S. Ohio, was telling in his remarks. I met several graduates; McRoberts, Connell, Harrod, and the Rileys, who were not at the supper.

Nothing could exceed the grace and happy manner of Bishop Thompson in introducing the speakers and his pleasant little speeches.

If there were more of these Re-unions, it were better for the Institution. I like the SCHOLIAST.

Some Extracts From Bishop Clarkson's Address before the Board of Missions,
Philadelphia, October 5, 1883.

Fathers and Brethren:--It was just eighteen years ago, when the General Convention last assembled in this beautiful city, that the summons came to me to go to the two great western Territories of Nebraska and Dakota, and oversee her work there. Since that time many of those who were our missionary leaders have gone to their reward--Bishop Kemper, Bishop Randall, Bishop Talbot, Dr. Twing, and William Welsh, names never to be spoken but with love and reverence. All honor to their memories. May God give us all somewhat of their spirit and devotion. * * *

It is difficult to make eastern people, and dear old eastern Bishops whose Dioceses move along year after year in the same groves, to comprehend the arithmetic of the west, and raise themselves up to a true conception of its marvelous growth. And it is sometimes sad to think how far behind other Christian bodies of the land we are, in realizing that those great States west of the Missouri River are the strategic points of missionary operations in the warfare of to day.

Very much, indeed, has the Church done for her work there in the last fifteen years, compared with her work on the frontier in any fifteen years of her previous history, but very much yet remains for her to learn, and to venture, and to accomplish. And the first great lesson that she must acquire, is the absolute needfulness of having a Bishop at once settled in, and working for each one of these magnificent Territories.

It is a great deal more difficult, physically speaking, for the good Bishop of Colorado to reach and rule Wyoming, than it would be for the Bishop of Maine to reach and rule the Diocese of Maryland, and Utah and Idaho are not easier of a single Episcopal oversight than would be Michigan and Indiana; and as for New Mexico and Arizona, it would be far more practicable to combine Kentucky and Virginia under one Bishop. Both of these great States, laid alongside of each other, would about cover a respectable corner of Bishop Dunlap's jurisdiction.

For the sake, then, of these noble hearted Bishops, of whom you have asked what is impossible; for the sake of the Church, for whose missionary operations in this great land you are responsible; for the countless crowds of human souls that are pouring into these prosperous territories, who must be fed with the Bread of Life, I beg that you will send to each of these future States, the Church of Christ, in the fulness and power of her earthly organization.

But I hear some intensely prudent and overcautious churchman say, "We cannot make this great venture. A Missionary Bishop costs the Board $3.000 a year. Four Missionary Bishops would add 812,000 annually to our outlay. We are in debt now. We cannot afford to do this thing." ******

I would find, if you please, four or five young men of wisdom, and godliness, and ability, whose souls were aflame with missionary zeal, who had no families to support, and who could live upon one-third of the salaries now paid to our missionary Bishops. I would say to them 'Silver and gold we have none,' but there is as noble a field for Christian ambition, and for Christian work, as God ever gave to his servants on this earth. There is Wyoming, or Idaho; take it as your Diocese, work it, plant it, sow it, and the Lord bless and prosper you." Does any man here doubt that four or five such young men, in every way qualified, could be found in this Church? If they cannot be, then the Lord have mercy upon a poor waning, starving, dying body, that calls itself "The Church of Christ."

Does any man here doubt the end and result of such a venture? Why, it would arouse, and inspire, and enoble us all. The Church would take such youthful Bishops to her great heart with the fondest affection, and carry them on her broad shoulders with royal pride, and say to them. "Silver and gold I have plenty of,--the Board of Missions to the contrary notwithstanding,--and you shall have it, and you shall have men to help you, and you shall have all my sympathy and love and prayers to surround you, and bless you." Such an action on our part would endow this whole Church with the impulsive power of a new enthusiasm. * *

I think that if I should be fortunate enough to get this $10,000, I should almost be willing to say that this should be "my last appearance upon the stage" of solicitation. And yet that might be a rash promise, for I have often thought that a Missionary Bishop was the sole person on earth to whom were utterly inapplicable those fine words of the poet:

"Man wants but little here below,
Nor wants that little long."
