Whereas, by an Act of the General Assembly, passed in one thousand seven hundred and eighty-five, the commissioners of the town of Edenton were empowered to convey to the trustees of Smith's Academy, for the use thereof, a lot or parcel of ground out of the town common, not exceeding six acres, and an academy having been since erected in the said town, and incorporated by the name of Edenton Academy, whereby doubts have arisen whether the commissioners of the said town can convey to the trustees of the said Edenton Academy any title to the said lot of ground by virtue of the said Act: For remedy whereof,

Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of North Carolina, and it is hereby enacted by the authority of the same, That the commissioners of the said town be, and they are hereby authorized and empowered to convey to the trustees of the said Edenton Academy, the aforesaid lot of ground, to be held by them and their successors forever, for the sole use and benefit of that institution, in as full and ample a manner as they might or could have done, under the before recited Act to the trustees of Smith's Academy; any thing contained in the before-mentioned Act to the contrary notwithstanding.
