An Act for Relief of Innis Academy.

1803 - Chapter XXXIV

The Laws of North Carolina of 1803 - Page 31

Whereas by an Act passed at Fayetteville, in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and eighty-eight, entitled "An Act to Amend an Act, entitled An Act for the Promotion of Learning in the District of Wilmington," several Trustees were appointed to manage the concerns of Innis Academy; and whereas most of them are since dead, have refused to act, or removed to distant parts of the country, so that there is no prospect of their being ever able to make a board, and it has become necessary that others should be appointed in their stead:

Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of North Carolina, and it is hereby enaced by the authority of the same, That Robert Nixon, James Bludworth, Hinton James, William Robertson, Sr., Almand Hall, Richard Quince, James Shawe, John Calvin, James Foy, Roger Cutlar and Samuel Ashe (son of John) be appointed, and they are hereby appointed Trustees to said Academy, with all and every power and powers which the Trustees in said Act named had and enjoyed; and furthermore, that if it shall appear to the Trustees hereby appointed, proper and expedient to dispose of the tract of land bequeathed to said Academy by James Innis, Esquire, deceased, in order to procure a more convenient one, they are hereby fully empowered to convey a good and sufficient title to the purchaser.

Read three times and ratified in General Assembly,
22nd day of December, Anno Domini, 1803
William White, Secretary
