Excerpt from Report on the Rights and Duties of the President and Fellows of Harvard College: In Relation to the Board of Overseers
Overseers, and of the corresponding obligations to which the President and Fellows were invited to assent, and which were proposed to be the subjects of the joint rules which it was the only office of the two committees in joint session to provide, and considering also the very grave importance of them all, lying as they do at the foundation of the constitution of the College, and what seemed the novelty of some of them - were of course unprepared to act upon the question of establishing any such joint rules, without time for investigation into the proposed subjects of them; - an investigation which it was supposed might necessarily require much time, it appearing that a period of nine months had been taken for that which had resulted in the above-mentioned Report, on the same subjects, adopted by the Board of Overseers.
Your Committee have not thought it worth their while to inquire into the causes of this movement on the part of the Board of Overseers, nor into the existence of any other supposed grievances than those intimated in the Report of their Committee, the nature of which will be presently considered. Nor are they aware of any difficulties or inconveniences which have recently been experienced in the intercourse between the two Boards, requiring the establishment of a code of laws for its regulation, which the experience of two centuries seems to show were not before thought necessary. The College certainly never was in a more prosperous condition; it has never, in any period of its history, received more significant and gratifying proofs of public confidence and liberality than during the last ten years. Nor are the Committee aware of any complaint or embarrassment in the action of the two Boards, excepting in one instance, stated in the Report under consideration, and insisted on in one previously made in relation to an alleged irregularity, but which will be found in strict accordance with a general usage during the whole history of the College, and thus to have received the repeated sanction of the Board now making the imputation.
