Mr. Fearn laid before the House the following report of the Trustees of the University of Alabama:

To the Honorable General Assembly of the State of Alabama.

The Trustees of the University in compliance with the law requiring them to report a suitable place or places for the location of said institution, respectfully report: That should the General

Assembly consider it expedient to locate the University in the Northern part of the State, the board consider Athens, or some place near it, in Limestone county, most suitable.

That should the General assembly consider it expedient to locate the institution in the middle section of the State, the board conceive the following places most suitable, viz.- some point within Township 17 and Range 18 in Autauga county- Wilson's Hill in Shelby county- the place


94

called Gages' in Perry county- and some place near the town of Tuskaloosa.

The board forbear to enter into a detail of facts to show how far each of the places recommended possesses the several requisites pointed out by the act of assembly; or the relative advantages of each. Though each of the places is known to some members of the board, there is none of them of which all the members by personal observation on the spot, and through the adjacent country, have acquired such information as enables them distinctly to point out its several advantages as a site for this institution. They regret their inability to go further into the view of facts of this kind the less, because they presume, that from the members of your Honorable body residing near the several sites recommended, the General Assembly have sources of information probably more full and satisfactory than the board cold afford by such examinations as, within any reasonable period, they would have it in their power to make.

All of which is respectfully submitted by order of the board.

ISRAEL PICKENS, President.
