The trustees did more than abolish the Society, they 

passed "certain regulations."  These the Faculty has not given us 

in their original form.  It is necessary therefore to give a

other than those of a religious and devotional character.  

or for purposes associated with the course of studies; nor shall 

deliver public addresses, or lectures at the Seminary, or elsewhere 

at term time, other than those connected with ordinary religious ex-

students when assembled at their meals, or on any other ordi-

nary occasion, nor be absent from the Seminary in term 

time, without the approbation of the faculty, or of such per-

sons as they shall designate for that purpose."
