Σελίδα 23 - As to the doctrine of cy pret as applied to charities, this sensible distinction has prevailed: the Court will not decree execution of a trust of a charity in a *manner different from that intended, except so far as they see, that the intention cannot be executed literally, but another mode may be adopted consistent with his general intention, so as to execute it, though not in mode, in substance. If the mode becomes by subsequent circumstances impossible, the general object is not to be defeated,...
Σελίδα 38 - ... and there is no power, at least none here, to alter that foundation, with a view to any superior benefit which might arise from an institution of a different nature, however desirable it might be, if it were within the scope of my authority, to substitute the one for the other.
Σελίδα 11 - Again, in his report for 1851-52, he remarks: " The voluntary system, as it is called, is still retained to a certain extent, rather from necessity than preference." At the moment of the downfall of the elective system at Harvard, as will be seen in the section upon the third quarter of the nineteenth century, Brown University took it up in a radical form. Reference to the appropriate later chapters of this bulletin will show that this was the period of the organization...
Σελίδα 34 - ... be given to the serious, impartial, and unbiassed investigation of Christian truth, and that no assent to the peculiarities of any denomination of Christians be required either of the instructors or students.
Σελίδα 25 - It is not for rne to consider whether corporations or colleges are or are not, in a general view, well or ill qualified to be trustees. The founders of many charitable institutions have thought fit to appoint colleges to be trustees of their foundations ; the law has allowed this to be done, and courts of equity are not, in my opinion, at liberty to say that this shall not be done, upon the notion that, when individuals are trustees, there is a greater personal responsibility.
Σελίδα 47 - Rev. George R. Noyes, DD, Hancock Professor of Hebrew and other Oriental Languages, and Dexter Lecturer on Biblical Literature.
Σελίδα 29 - Jackson, of ten thousand dollars, is given " to the President and Fellows of Harvard College, in trust to hold the same for the benefit of the Theological Seminary connected with said College " ; and accompanied with this further provision: " I direct that the said sum of ten thousand dollars shall be for ever holden in trust as aforesaid, as a capital stock, and to be called the Jackson Foundation, the income thereof to be annually appropriated for the support of poor and deserving scholars, students...
Σελίδα 37 - I observe, that many of the witnesses say, that, as a grammar school, this will be of no benefit to them. Now that is a consideration with which, if the loss of benefit is not improperly produced, I have nothing to do ; for if the founder thought fit to establish a grammar school, and if afterwards, from different notions about education prevailing, it became of much less public benefit, that is not a ground upon which a judge can alter it. He that created it had the right to determine its nature.
Σελίδα 33 - Cemmonwealth, every denomination of Christians shall be equally under the protection of the law, and that no subordination of any one sect or denomination to another shall ever be established by law...
Σελίδα 11 - University has provided instruction, are so large that it is impossible for any student, within the period of four years, to give such a degree of attention to them all as will enable him to acquire more than a limited and superficial knowledge from which little profit can be derived.
