      Pursuant to notice the Board of Visitors met at the office of Breckinridge and
Shelby, Messrs. Metcalfe, Bradford, Moran, and Breckinridge present.

      Minutes of the meeting of July 12, 1878 read and approved.

      Treasurer White submitted a statement of receipts and expenditures.

      It was ordered that Nick Hadden' s application to have his matriculation fee
returned be rejected, but that the Treasurer be ordered to pay him his room-rent, $5.00 in
full of all claims.

      The President of the Faculty was directed to report specifically and in detail what
repairs are needed on the buildings and fencing on the land in the possession of the
Agricultural & Mechanical College, and the Executive Committee is directed to demand
of Kentucky University that the repairs be made immediately.

      Upon motion, it was resolved that Colonal L. J. Bradford is hereby authorized to
propose to the proper authorities of the city of Covington and New Port to send the

and the President of the Faculty a general report of the condition of the college; with both
of which reports the Board expressed satisfaction, but no formal report having been
