Bishop White Hall, Nashotah.

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

"Nashotah Lakes, Feb. 16, 1884--Breck to Lisbon to visit the Communicants. 19th--B. and I off at 5; unable to get a horse sooner; at Nanscoyns by 7, (Prairie Village); met there several Church people; staid with them all night. 18th--Church nearly full; 16 communicants. John with me to the Forrest; an hour too early; called at the house once Cole's; rooms very plain; full. Murrey there; spoke to the Sandfords; returned to P. V. Tea at Barstow's after; B. and I off. The hostler in the stable in P. Village had changed part of the harness; coming down a hill the sleigh touched the horse; he kicked and attempted to run off; stopt him, fixed up, and started again. It occurred a second time; then we were in great danger; we stopt the horse, notwithstanding his great efforts to be off. B. received one slight kick; the sleigh was broken. I set off on foot ten miles carrying my overcoat, pockets full, and the bags of Breck and myself; he overtook me after a while and relieved me from the bags, which he placed on the horse. I carried the tankard in my hand; fell over; it was slippery and occasionally muddy. The hills became very difficult to ascend; at home by 9:30; sent Becby with the horse to Edgerton's, 5 miles; back by 2; our feet were very wet; ate heartily of bread and butter. 19th--We were all up late this morning; my legs are weary and my feet a little sore; but few at home, several having gone last night to lay read at Oconomowoc; reports this morning quite favorable with regard to the prospects there. 20th--Preparing a lecture; the smoke house burned. B. and I off to Bark River; late; at Mrs. Shears'. I preached and he baptized their infant; very respectable looking congregation; Mr. and Mrs. C., Mr. T. and Brainard and wife, J. Weaver and wife; some staid to tea. 21st--Mr. Shears and Mr. Thompson have a threshing machine. I met them last Sunday; they came home yesterday and are off again to-day. B. and I started after breakfast; 5 miles to Elliot's, where he left me, going on to Prairie Village. At 10:30 the house was full; had full Ash Wednesday service, a sermon and the Communion; I think 20 received; went home with James Weaver; took a snack, and he brought me home by sun-set in a sleigh; snow almost gone. I was to have been at P. Village to-night, but on account of the roads it was thought expedient that I should hasten home. 22d--Administered the Communion to the students and clergy as usual on this day (Thursday.)

"Feb. 23d--Went over with Mr. Breck the peculiar office of devotion: decided with him and Walsh the course of study for the students." [This was during Mr. Adams' 18 months' absence.] "The school house was raised to-day with the assistance of the students; visited the place yesterday and fixed upon the spot. 25th--Breck and I started soon after breakfast in a wagon; we went by the way of Delafield and Mr. Paddock's; arrived late at North Prairie; 13 miles; a full house; B. churched two women, and baptized 3 infants; many had Prayer Books tho' few knelt or joined in the service. After dinner 5 miles to the school house, near Dousman; full house; tea at Dousman's home, 7 miles by Summit; we discussed during our ride the plan to be adopted in case Smith perseveres in declining to be the farmer. 26th--Julius consents to become the farmer. The house now building is to be moved up near to the kitchen and the barn brought nearer than was intended. J. is to have a boy, to milk, and who is to be schooled in winter; the intended farm-house is to be used as a dormitory also; men are here today building an oven; attended the Greek examinations of Leach, Keene and Armstrong, selecting texts for the candidates; marking out a course of study. 27th--B. and Mr. Fribert, the Dane, started to visit the Prussians on Rock River." [28th--Bishop was unwell]; "did not attend morning prayers. 29th--Heard Mr. Unonius read for an hour both yesterday and to-day.

"March 1st--Preparing for services of Sunday; heard Unonius read; B. off in the rain to visit in the neighborhood of Bark River. 2d--G. baptized at the second morning service: Morning Prayer by Walsh; part of the service in Chapel by Breck; then we went in procession, B. and W. and I, the candidate and sponsors, students repeating Apostles' Creed and singing 104 hymn, 'O Spirit of the Living GOD;T rest of service at the Lake; the ice broken; B. immersed G. kneeling. While they came out of the water we sang 1st v. 88th hymn, 'Soldiers of Christ, Arise;' then I concluded; returning we sang the 76th hymn, 'He's Come, Let Every Knee be Bent.' Walsh concluded the service in the church and I gave the blessing; attended to the Latin examinations of 3 of the students. I have written a sermon for to-morrow on 1 Sam. vii: 12, which Unonius has translated. I have written an address after confirmation, which he has also translated. I have drawn up a consecration service and likewise an act of consecration of a burying ground.

"March 3d--The ride to Pine Lake very cold; we robed in Gasman's kitchen and commenced service at 11 o'clock; there was a nice Communion Table under the window; the majority of the people had to stand. Having had the fall morning service in the Chapel at 6. I commenced with the Ante-Communion. Unoniu reading the Collects, Epistle and Gospel in Swedish; then they sang; then I preached and U. repeated; they sang again; then the Confirmation service, most of which U. repeated; confirmed 7; addressed them and U. translated in Swedish; was much affected and he and the two ladies from Sweden wept; singing again in Swedish; administered Eucharist to about 25; half our people; the foreigners unaccustomed to Communion except once or twice a year; there are about 75 communicants among them. B. read the preface to Confirmation and administered the cup; a parish was formed and about 110 names given in of men, women and children; we had a nice lunch, some seated at table and others standing, the daughters waiting on us. At 3:30 we went 1/2 a mile to the burying ground, an acre fenced in, with a gate; a crop over it; high land; where I consecrated by the service I had prepared. We walked in procession from the gate to the centre, repeating de profundis. I laid the act on the ground and Fribert, the new senior warden, took it up; home by 5:30. In the burying ground Unonius came up to me with one of the Norwegians to say that his people thanked me for my services."

[On the 4th the Bishop started with Mr. Breck and Taft, one of the student, driving in a wagon with two horses, to visit Troy, Elkhorn, Delavan, Geneva, Burlington, Rochester, Maquanago and Prairie Village, returning on the 9th to Nashotah in time for evening service.]

"March 10th--Officiated twice in Nashotah Chapel; some of the Scandinavian congregation there in the morning with Unonius, who was too much indisposed to officiate at Pine Lake." [On the 11th the Bishop left Nashotah, having a service at Wauwatosa that evening; 13th, 15th and 19th, in Milwaukee; 19th, at Janesville; 21st, at Madison; 23d, at Mineral Point, and was not again in Wisconsin during '44.]

Extract from a letter written by the Bishop at Nashotah: "Feb. 23, 1844--The Mission; now from Domestic Communion; only $500; if Walsh goes only $250, besides $25 from a few of the students, all of our income; had we farm broken, fenced and stocked, kitchen and pantry furnished, library for clergy and laics, another dormitory, class-books for the students,

Provisions, groceries, and clothing for a year, Nashotah would support itself and 50 lay brethren from farm and school; ploughing per acre, $3; harrowing, $1.50; 60 acres, then $270. We want a yoke of oxen, a horse, ox-cart, wagon, 6 cows, 20 sheep, hogs, poultry, etc., agricultural and garden tools, large cooking stove, some crockery, etc. Baking and washing now cost $16 a month [this was soon after for some years done by the students]; 18 months before we can receive benefit from the farm. Clothing, books, etc., could be sent from Philadelphia; money most desirable. This the only way in which I can get missionaries."

[The buildings now at Nashotah were the Blue House, the Chapel, with sleeping rooms over and under it, the original cabin on the ground when purchased, and in which the clergy lived while the Blue House was building, and which was drawn up alongside of it for a kitchen. A house originally intended for a farm-house, now building, was also drawn up by the kitchen, and the school-house or library that had just been raised, all were of the smallest and cheapest description.]



'47. Dr. Keene, who has remained abroad longer than was expected, will probably be home within a month. His associate, Rev. W. H. Throop, '74, is said to be doing good work at the parish of S. John's, Milwaukee.

'54. We recently had the pleasure of attending service at S. Paul's church, Ashippun, Wis. The rector, Rev. L. D. Brainerd, is doing well, his people are interested, and hope soon to build a beautiful stone church.

'59. Rev. N. Rue High, who has been for years rector of S. John's church, Toledo, died on Tuesday morning, Feb. 19. Of the funeral The Blade thus speaks: "A larger assemblage and one that bore more unmistakable signs of genuine sorrow, has never been gathered together upon a similar occasion in Toledo," The Bishop who was present showed great sympathy and love for the Priest who had just finished his course and gone to his well earned rest. In another column is a letter on Mr. High from an old friend.

'71. Rev. S. J. Yundt, in addition to his duties as rector of Zion church, Chippewa Falls, Wis., has been carrying on with marked success, a Hospital to care for men injured in the pineries.

'83. Rev. James Slidell has refused to consider a call to Whitewater, Wis.

THE sad news from Nebraska has come to us, sad--not to him who has just entered the well earned rest of Paradise--but to us who are deprived of his fatherly guidance and strong manhood.

We wrote Bishop Clarkson of our purpose in beginning the publication of the SCHOLIAST and it is to his courteous reply that we would make allusion. Others far better qualified can, as they surely will, sound the praises of the noble-hearted pioneer Prelate of Nebraska. But as young men we wish to speak of the great impression made on us by the Bishop's answer to us, which his death will render indelible. He remitted his subscription, ordered the advertisement of his Diocesan Schools, sent the able Missionary Address he made at Philadelphia last fall, (from which extracts have appeared in these columns) and wrote a note, short but characteristically kind and encouraging, commending us, and our work to GOD.

It was just at an anxious period that the note came. Every thing was untried, the future a blank. It is very doubtful whether Bishop Clarkson had any idea of the real good the few simple words did us. The thoughtful and fatherly condescension shown; the feeling that amid his duties (which we knew to be great) he could find time to show a few unknown young men such consideration, made them feel that they wished to know him.

And was not the characteristic to which we allude the marked element in his wonderful success? Did he not find and use one of his Master's greatest powers in his generous thought for others? Is it to be deemed wonderful that youths and mere children were so much interested in the sermons and words of one, whom they knew to be interested in them? So GOD has called him to his rest in Jesus, him whom we call pre-eminently "The Friend of young Men."

To his family and Diocese we assure the prayer and heartfelt sympathy of the Institution with which Bishop Clarkson in earlier days was intimately connected.

Nashotah Close and Chapel.

--Rev. N. D. Stanley, '84, has been spending some days at Fond du Lac.

--Dr. Adams lectures at the Cathedral, March 19th, on "Doctrine of Baptism."

--Mr. O. W. Greenslade of Milwaukee spent Sunday the 16th with us as a guest of Prof. Riley.

--Messrs. Lemon and Welles, of the Seminary, attended the ordination at the Cathedral on Sunday, the 9th.

--Our little visitor, Miss Josie Breck, Barrytown, N. Y., brought kind remembrances to he Annandale men, from Prof. Hopson.

--The SCHOLIAST wishes to congratulate Mrs. Holt on the occasion of her 72nd Birthday, Sunday 16, and to pray all good things for her.

--There will be a "Retreat" for the Associates f the Sisters of St. Mary at the Cathedral, Chicago, Wednesday, the 19th. Rev. Prof, liley will be Conductor.

--Mrs. Adams is still confined to her home. Her many friends among the students sympathize with her and trust she may soon be restored to her former good health.

--During Lent Nones is said, daily, in the Oratory, and at the conclusion of Evening Prayer, the Lesser Litany and Ps. LI., in the Chapel. On Fridays a Meditation.

--When is Prof. Gold going to give us the privilege and pleasure of listening to the remaining Lectures on Liturgies? There will be great and general disappointment if they are not to be.

--Dr. Cole has been moving about recently between New York, Philadelphia and Baltimore. We have seen some very pretty likenesses of the McKim children. They don't look at all like little "Japs."

--Our letters from the Gen. Theo. Seminary, prove very interesting. We are indebted to C. A. J. for giving the Column such an auspicious start. Will not some friends of the cause in other Seminaries write us of their doings?

--Mrs. Dr. Kemper paid a visit to her friend Mrs. Locke, wife of the Rev. Dr. Locke, Chicago. We are pleased to see that she is much improved in her health by her short stay.

--Miss Lottie Watson of Milwaukee spent some days of last week with Mrs. Humphrey at Shelton Hall.

--Bishop White Hall, pictured on the first page, was built about 1856, the year before Dr. deKoven went to Racine. It is of interest at this time to know that it was Bishop Clarkson who recommended Dr. deKoven to Bishop Kemper, for Racine College.

Cuts of the other buildings and of familiar faces will be forthcoming.

We have much to say of our exchanges, and the inclination to say something good, but not the space. The Young Churchman has given us the right hand of fellowship. That paper is meeting with merited success. Milwaukee indeed has a number of enterprising and interesting sheets, The School Budget, New Century, Young Hopeful, etc. The Wolfe Hall Banner, coming from Denver, is certainly a creditable affair.

--In a letter dated Bermuda, Feb. 24, Mr. L. H. Schubert, '84, writes: "Hamilton is the Capitol of the Island. It is naturally a beautiful place. * * Stone is the general material for building. It is very soft and porous. It is sawn with an ordinary saw into blocks. * Hamilton had a beautiful church, but it was destroyed by fire the morning before I arrived. It is said to have been the work of an incendiary. The walls still stand as awful witnesses of the sacrilege. * The building was forty years in building. This, however, can be easily reconciled when one knows the characteristics of the Bermudians. Bishop Jones (Bermuda and Newfoundland) is now making his biennial visitation. Bermuda is divided into nine parishes. There are six Presbyters. At St. George, the former Capitol, the Reformed Episcopalians have a fair building. * Many of the most prominent are retracing their steps. * * Among the dissenting bodies the Methodists are the most influential and numerous. The Roman Catholics are few.

"Bermuda is most beautifully formed. The whole Island is a panorama. The climate, though more changeable and much more damp than Wisconsin, is delightful. Last week mercury registered and averaged 70° in the shade. Vegetation is far advanced. This year's potatoes are served at the tables. * Accommodations are poor and everything exorbitantly high. * "

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 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.--The students furnished the music at the funeral of the seven Jeannette victims, held at Holy Trinity on Feb. 23. The address of Dr. Potter (Assistant Bishop), on that occasion, was a warm eulogy of the heroism of Commander De Long and his comrades. The music was under the direction of the Senior Organist, Mr. Vardry McBee, of Tenn.

Dr. Geo. C. Shattuck, of Boston, delivered three very interesting lectures before the students during the month of February, on the "Laws of Hygiene." He spoke some very plain and practical words on the duty which students and clergymen owe to their own health, and warned them against the too common fault of neglecting physical for mental training. He prefaced his lectures by a most interesting history of the Science of Medicine, tracing its progress from the earliest times down to the present day.

The "Paddock" Lectures, for 1884, are now in course of delivery. They are delivered by the Bishop of Long Island, on the subject, "The Christian Ministry at the Close of the XIX Century." Two lectures of the course have already been delivered. The first, "The Christian Ministry at the Bar of Criticism," at once showed the students that the subject would be dealt with in a very plain and impartial way by the venerable Bishop. Both the introductory lecture and the second of the course, on "Causes which have Modified or Impaired the Influence of the Ministry," were appreciated very highly by all the students. It is a remarkable fact that the Bishop has managed to win the admiration and agreement of the men of all parties in the Seminary and at the same time to treat his subject in a most decided manner.

Rev. N.R. High, B.D.

When I was a student of St. John's Hall, Delafield, Mr. High was a student at Nashotah, and since that time I have met him but seldom. I have been at his house two or three times, and spent a day or two with him in his Parish.

As a student, Mr. High was a great favorite. He was very warm-hearted and affectionate--very lively in conversation. He was extremely fond of music, and at this time he played on the guitar, and with his fine voice, he was constantly singing. He always sang in the Chapel services. His room was always full of students at all hours of the day and every evening; in fact, his room was always a sort of headquarters; a genial, bright and happy place, made so by him. All of his qualities were of the bright, genial, lovable kind. He had a most sincere love for Nashotah and everything connected with it, and only lack of means prevented him from visiting Nashotah often.

In his Parish he was regarded with intense affection, especially by the children, boys and young men. He had a choir of boys and men, whom he trained himself. His church and everything in it was attractive. At one time the late Bishop McIlvaine commanded him to take the surplices off his choir. He did so with great grief and sorrow; and yet, after all, he was able to keep his choir together, until a few years ago, under the present Bishop the surplices were resumed. He was devoted to his Parish work. He worked in his own way, doing everything by the strength of his love and his own individuality, rather than by any rule or system. He loved the services above all things, and would have been content to stay in church all day and every day. He was devoted to his Parish and his home, and he seldom left home, and never attended Conventions or Convocations. He regarded them all as "worthless affairs and mere places of talk," and would never, or very seldom, have anything to do with them. For the past year or two he preached or addressed his people in church while sitting in a chair. I believe that to the last his people continued to regard him with great affection and love. His influence over the young was wonderful. I remember years ago, (over 20 years ago), he was married in Racine College Chapel, by Dr. DeKoven, who had a great affection for him; that it was a bright and happy day for us all, and how little we supposed that his work would cease just in the prime of life.

He was in all things a man trained by Nashotah, full of the idea that he must stay and do the best in his power just where GOD had put him; and so he staid at his post till death in a trying climate and amid many things to discourage him. Whenever we met, we had a long and loving talk about Nashotah. But it is now quite seven years since I saw him in his little Rectory in Toledo. He was then very delicate, but as full of fun, and life, and love, and music, as ever. C. C. T.

The Retreat.

The Retreat took place as announced in the last issue and all present (19 Priests and the students) felt indebted to Father Prescott for great spiritual counsel and comfort. He kindly permitted us to make the following extracts from the Meditations:


It is difficult for us to realize what is meant when we speak of our Redeemer's perfect endurance. To give an illustration of it is like trying to convey in words some idea of Eternity. We exhaust language and do not begin to express anything. Multiply the number of the stars by the drops which form the ocean, and these again by the sands on the sea shore, and these again by every leaf and blossom, and fruit and seed, which the earth has ever given forth, and all this by itself times innumerable, and it has not touched even the circumference of Eternity, for it has no circumference. So in estimating Jesus's sufferings. They were infinite, for the will was to suffer infinitely; they were infinite for they were infinitely anticipated. Our Redeemer came with a body prepared to endure everything; and His endurance of suffering outlasted men and devils' endurance in inflicting suffering.

The malice of all evil ones and the malice of all who were in league with the evil ones, was satisfied because it was exhausted. When there was no more that they could do; when all devices were baffled; when they had had their will and their way, and had lost all hope of being able to inflict more, then Jesus said, "It is finished." His will to suffer was as firm and fresh as if He had suffered nothing. It had not been touched even in its circumference.

Then there was the anticipation and the reality of His anguish, and this must be multiplied by His intense sympathy for those for whom He suffered. They were His own, and having loved them in the beginning, He loved them unto the end. And this again must be multiplied, for those for whom He suffered were those by whom He suffered. He suffered for them because of His deep sympathy, and He suffered without them. With His sorrow neither friend nor foe could intermeddle. The agony must have deepened from His being alone. He marvelled, we are told, "that there was no man." There had been deep sorrow in the garden interior; anguish which pressed the very Life Blood from His Body, and this manifested by His restlessness, His seeming change of purpose, His going back and forth from His disciples to the place where He had knelt and fallen. There was deeper sorrow here. In the garden He could say "Father;" now he cries, 'My GOD!" In the garden He was bearing our sins as a Penitent; on the Cross He was expiating our sins as a Sacrifice. The outer darkness was a manifestation of the inward horror. One need not speak of our loathsome fleshly sins which He bore in His flesh, but of the spiritual sins which we either think something of ourselves, pride, self-sufficiency, cleverness, acuteness; or such as we think little about, envy, jealousy, censoriousness, criticism--sometimes good-natured--but always impertinent; resistance of grace, non-attendance to checks of conscience; blindness and lapses.

Bishop------tells this of old Bishop Chase.

A young man of some airs came into his log louse to call on the Bishop and annoyed him exceedingly by leaving his head covered. "But Bishop do you consider this disease contiguous?" "Contagious, you block-head, take off your hat!"

Trinkets of all kinds were a great weakness of Dr.------. During his Seminary course he had charge of the Sunday School at Delafield. Standing before the children to catechise them one Sunday, he was fingering his numerous watch charms as was his wont: "Now my children, you said 'pomps and vanities of this wicked world,' what do you mean by pomps and vanities." "Them things you is a swinging," was the ready answer of a little fellow.
