Whereas the New Bern Academy established by the before recited Act will promote the valuable and useful purposes for which it was intended if properly encouraged; and as it hath been represented to this General Assembly that a lot of land with the improvements thereon in the town of New Bern, commonly called and known by the appellation of the Glebe, which was formerly purchased at the expence of the inhabitants of the county of Craven for the residence of a minister of the Episcopal church, would tend to the increase of the funds of the said academy, if the same was vested in the trustees thereof:

I. Be it therefore enacted by the General Assembly of the State of North Carolina, and it is hereby enacted by the authority of the same, That the lot of land in the town of New Bern, situate on Middle and Johnston streets, and known and described in the plan of the said town by the number three hundred and twenty-two, together with all the improvements thereon, be, and it is hereby declared to be vested in the trustees for promoting and establishing the New Bern Academy, and their successors forever, in trust to and for the benefits, uses and purposes of the academy; and the said trustees or a majority of them, at their first meeting after the passing of this Act, may take possession of the said lot and improvements, and rent or otherwise dispose of the same in such manner as to them may appear most advantageous to the said academy.

Passed Jan. 6, 1787.
