Long and important session of the Board of Trustees; but we did not finish the principal business, i.e. of setting apart $40,000 for the two Professorships, and the payments of the debts of the College. We lacked Mrs. Prendergast’s permission to institute the professorship of natural philosophy. Preside in the evening at the Commencement of the Medical College and confer the degrees. There were six graduates. Dr. Towler delivered a spirited valedictory, severe on quackery.
