4 ANNUAL REGISTER l- _` i ,. of the College, the City Park, containing iifty·two ~ acres of land, within the limits of the city, and thirty thousand dollars in city bonds for the erection of build- _ ings: This oii`er the county of Fayette supplemented V · by twenty thousand dollars in county bonds, to be used either for the erection of buildings or for the purchase of land. The offers of the city of Lexington and of the county of Fayette were accepted by the General As- sembly. By the act of incorporation, and the amendments , thereto, constituting the charter ot the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Kentucky, liberal provision is made for educating, free of tuition, the energetic young men of the Commonwealth whose means are limited. The Normal Department, `for which provision is also _ made, is intended to aid in building up the Common School System by furnishing properly qualified teach- ers. This College, with the associated departments which will, from time to time, be opened as the means placed at the disposal of the Trustees will allow, will, it is hoped, in the no distant future, do a great work in ‘ advancing the educational interest of Kentucky. Being entirely undenominational in its character, it will ap- peal with confidence to people of all creeds and of no creed, and will endeavor, in strict conformity with the requirements of its organic law, to afford equal ad- _ ‘ vantages to all, exclusive advantages to none. The liberality of the Commonwealth in supplementing the - inadequate annual income arising from the proceeds of the land scrip invested in State bonds will, it is be- A lieved, enable the Trustees to begin and carry on, upon 4 a scale commensurate with the wants of our people, the operations of the institution whose management and oversight have been committed to them by the General Assembly of Kentucky.
