    Reflects on the founding of the University of London and King's College, London, welcoming 'the important benefits which they are calculated to work'. Observes: 'We are not of those who would (even were Newton's theory practicable) compress the world into a nutshell, or neglect "aught toward the general good"'. (33) Welcomes accordingly the contributed illustration and description of Columbia College. A concluding note discusses the history of Gresham College and Sion College, lamenting the failure of the former to fulfil Thomas Gresham's intentions.
