This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project
to make the world's books discoverable online.

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover.

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the
publisher to a library and finally to you.

Usage guidelines

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying.

We also ask that you:

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for
personal, non-commercial purposes.

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help.

+ Maintain attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it.

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe.

About Google Book Search

ORGANIZATION



Rutgers College was founded as Queen's College
November 10, 1766. It was the eighth college founded
in the American colonies and had its origin in the zeal
for education and religion shown by the Dutch colonists
in New York and New Jersey. Early in the eighteenth
century the Reverend Theodorus Jacobus Frelinghuysen,
distinguished pastor -and evangelist, urged the erection of
such a college. His son, the Reverend Theodorus Freling-
hu3^en, continued the effort, persistently seeking the
necessary sympathy and resources both in this country and
Holland. As the movement came to successful issue the
Reverend Jacob Rutsen Hardenbergh, afterwards president
of the College, was the leader. With each of these ministers
Hendrick Fisher, president of the first Provincial Congress
of New Jersey, was the layman most actively associated.

The charter was granted in the name of George the
Third by His Excellency William Franklin, Governor of the
Province of New Jersey. No copy of this document is now
known to be in existence, but under its provisions the Board
of Trustees was created and meetings were called. A second
charter was granted March 20, 1770, in answer to the Trus-

almost unchanged, the institution has continued until now.
It provides for a college to be called Queen's College in
