"I deny the feasibility of the plan adopted, viz. by a University--which
I pronounce to be the most partial and unjust institution on which the
public money could have been lavished...[t]he advantage to be derived
is confined to a few--many persons living in eastern, western and southern
counties, whose circumstances would admit, will by the distance be deferred
from sending their sons to the University"
