Hon. Charles Manly

Dear Sir

Finding it will be out of my power to be present at the meeting of the Trustees next Wednesday; I have concluded to submit through you to the Board, my views in regard to the subject of Chapel worship, the main question to be discussed.
My deliberate opinion is, that the students of our university should be required to attend Chapel Service at some designated Hour every Sabbath; not that I would restrict the Conscience or free exercise of Religious opinion of any of my fellow mortals; but that our students, many of whom are young & inconsiderate, may be under the immediate supervision of the Faculty on that day; & I hope these views will meet with the hearty approval of the entire Board.

Very respectfully,

R. D. Hart
