No Access Until
Among the correspondence of late summer were letters from Henry W. Sage and from dealers who hoped to furnish Sage College. There were letters from schools White was considering for his son Fred, and on September 2 an old Yale friend invited White to join a group for dinner in New Haven, Let us get together and lay a plot for reforming Yale College. We want to do that before your boy enters. A question from a prospective student about the admission of Negroes was answered by White on September 5. In November Russel wrote at length his disapproval of a book about reproduction that Professor Burt Green Wilder was preparing to publish, and two days later, on November 8, E. D. Morris reported to White his dismay on hearing lectures by Russel and Adler. Morrill wrote about the Common School bill then before Congress, Chester A. Arthur, collector of the Port of New York, answered an appointment request, and Reverdy Johnson consulted White about the selection of a president for Johns Hopkins University. Much of the correspondence after December 9 concerned the death of Mr. Cornell.
