Chase describes the progress with the buildings at Kenyon. He also tells Bates of his disappointment with Mr. West, who was seeking to succeed Chase in his role as Bishop, which Chase claimed he could not support as the appointment of a Bishop should not be sought out. Mr. West has since returned to New York and is no longer connected with Chase.
