is true to its great mission, will be but the deepening and broadening of the same beneficent purposes.

BIBLIOGRAPHY.

1. PUBLIC ACTS AND DOCUMENTS. The legislative proceedings relative to the incorporation and endowment of Cornell

University may be followed in the journals of the senate and assembly of New York for 1865. For previous proceedings relative to the land

grant and the People's College see the journals for 1863 and 1864. The Cornell University. Speech of Hon. Andrew D. White, in [the) senate (of

New York), March, 1865. pp. 8. The legislation affecting the university may be found in the Revised Statutes of

the State and the session laws. All legislation down to 1892 is included in the Laws and Documents relating to Cornell University, published by the university in that year. This publication also contains all public

documents relating to the university. The reports of the comptroller of the State since 1864 are of value in following

the history of the land grant and the disposition of the scrip. Mr. Cor

nell's reports to the comptroller are also of great value. The relation of the State to the land-scrip fund is decided in the case of The

People ex rel, Cornell University 1. Davenport, comptroller (117 N. Y.,

549). The relation of the State and the university to the Cornell endowment fund and

the history of the McGraw-Fiske will contest appear in the decisions in the matter of McGraw (45 Hun., 354; ib., 111 N. Y., 66); Cornell Uni

versity r. Fiske (136 U. S., 152). The land-grant history is enriched by the History of the Agricultural College

Land Grant of 1862" (Ithaca, 1890, pp. XX, 106), by S. D. Halliday, attorney for the university which grew out of the first case above cited and

contains the decision in the case. The investigation made, at the request of Mr. Cornell, by the legislature of New

York in 1873-74 resulted in the three following documents: State of New York: Senate (1874) Document No. 92. Majority report of the

commission to inquire into the college land grant, etc. (Albany, 1874.) pp. 40.

Signed by W. A. Wheeler and John D. Van Buren. State of New York: Senate (1874) Document No. 93. Minority report of the

commission to inquire into the college land grant, etc. (Albany, 1874.) pp. 10.

Signed by Horatio Seymour. It concurs with the majority report in vindicating Mr.

(ornell, but differs as to the relation of the State to the Cornell endowment fund. State of New York: Senate, 1874, Document No. 103. Testimony in investigation of the college land grants, etc. (Albany, 1874.) pp. 498.

2. HISTORIES OF THE UNIVERSITY. A “Sketch of the beginning of Cornell University” was in 1876 prepared by

Vice-President William Channing Russel, to be read before the University Convocation of the State of New York. The paper, if read, never appeared in the printed report of the convocation; but the manuscript of it is in the library of the university, and has been of much use. There did appear, however, in the convocation's report for 1876, under the head of University necrology," brief sketches, by Vice-President Russel, of Ezra Cornell and of John Stanton Gould.
