Principal of the school, J. Coxe writes to a colleague in shock over his sudden dismissal. Stating in part: I cherish very pleasant memories of your kindness in the past, and trust that nothing may grow out of this matter to mar our friendship.. I regard the action of the Committee as neither just, kind, nor courteous… Up to the meeting of the Comm. In May, I had never received any intimation that the Comm. Or the patrons of the school were dissatisfied with my administration… I had been repeatedly assured that the Comm. Neither desired nor designed any change… Waited on me with a notice that my services were no longer required… I should have estimated it a relief to have retired from the school, but to my suggestion to that effect, many of my brothers said No! At that time I could have easily adjusted my affairs to a change, and retired with no discredit, secured work elsewhere, and been unembarrassed by any such difficulties as now beset my way. ” Despite his overall frustration with the situation, Coxe writes, “I have no other wish than for the prosperity of the school… This was a period of changes for the institution which was founded earlier as Newbury Seminary; in 1868 it expanded as Vermont Conference Seminary and Female College in 1868, and just three years later in 1871 it was again renamed Vermont Methodist Seminary and Female College.
