A the year 1864. There is a small balance in the treasury of
this fund, and a few subscriptions yet outstanding, which may

There is also a small annual income arising from the tax

ii by law for the benefit of the Law Library. This money has

\* by the liberality of E. D. Saviua and F. K. HUNT, Esqs., of
` Lexington, and ].~\l\`[ES C. STONE, Esq., of Leavenworth,
` Kansas, who have each generously donated $1,000 of coupons I
A _ to be sold, and the proceeds set apart permanently for the )
establishment of specific prizes. Colonel STONE proposes to i
add other stock to his fund. This is the beginning of one of  
_ the most important funds of a University. I trust we will  
l' receive many similar donations from other friends of the  
    Institution. ‘
_ To these various funds there have been about eight hundred It
individual donors, who have given from $100 to $25,000 each.   y
  · One hundred and twenty-five of these have given $1,000 each,  
  and two hundred and thirty have given ,5 500 each. · pi
  The above statement shows the history and condition of the Q
L ‘ permanent funds of the University, which have been kept i
( .·.._ Y separately and distinct since their creation, in a regular set of ‘
(   books which, by the provisions of the charter, have been ex- I
. in if amined and approved annually by the Executive Committee, I '·
and which have always been open to their inspection and that  
of the donors. A detailed tabular statement of these funds t
