Is applying to the legislature for an act of incorporation for the school there in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania; hopes to be free the first of April; would like to return to Norwich University and take over his old buildings and school, which he does not believe the current board of trustees will pay for; expects a handsome donation from William L. Lee; hears of the death of T. B. Ransom; if the bill of incorporation passes the Pennsylvania legislature, Partridge will serve as President, although only present for about 11 weeks to deliver a course of lectures; the rest of the time, Partridge will devote to Norwich University; there is talk that Partridge will be nominated for the vice-presidency of the U.S.
