Professors George, Lawson and Weir.
The minutes of former meeting were read and

In regard to the application for degree of
B.A., of Mr. Daunt Grammar School Teacher
Lindsay, the Secretary stated that since last
meeting of Senatus, a certificate, in favor of
the said Mr. Daunt, had been received, to the effect
that he had been educated at Skibbereen Academy
County Cork Ireland with a view to his entering
Trinity College Dublin, but as no evidence of his
having received a Collegiate Education was furnished,
the Senatus agreed that [insert]the[/insert] matter be in
the meantime deferred for future Consideration.

It was stated by Dr. George that Mr. Alexander
Campbell on account of ill health was unable
to attend the ordinary Examinations for
degrees, that he wished to be partially examined
orally before the Senatus, and that from this and
the Knowledge which the Professors had individually
of his acquirements, the degree of
B.A. should be conferred upon him along with
the others entitled to that honor at the close of
the Session. The Senatus expressed most
strongly their sympathy with Mr. Campbell in
his illness, their high opinion of his attainments
as well as their confident expectation that he
is in every way qualified to hold the honor which
he claims, but at the same time they regret
that they do not feel themselves justified in departing
in his case from the ordinary Course,
