And the declaration then. For it appears that I find accordingly that there is a solemn there are many acts done in the University admission of the fellows after they have of Cambridge on a Sunday ; and that this taken this oath; and I think that such a is such an one as has been frequently, and ceremony accords with the meaning of the repeatedly, and constantly done on a Sunstatutes. With respect to the master, the day. I do not find that they proceed in statutes having ordained that the senior the same way at Oxford. The question, fellow shall declare his election, and admit however, if it were to turn upon this, him, proceed to reqnire that such senior would be not what may be done upon a shall present the master in the chapel Sunday, but what must be done upon a coram communitate collegii, that the Te Sunday; and if that point is not to be Deum shall be sang, and that the master considered as pre-judged by what one may elect shall take an oath which is there call a very general usage, I should think it prescribed, which being done, the senior would be better to say, that this act ought fellow shall immediately deliver the book not to be done on a Sunday, than that it of statutes, and the keys of the chests must necessarily be done on Sunday. But which belong to the master of the college, in my view of the present case, the quesNow it is not very clear what book is here tion does not require an answer; and meant; and whether the right book was therefore I desire to be understood as or was not used on the present occasion, giving no opinion upon it. I should be very sorry to decide the case The true point here is, what are we to upon a circumstance of that kind. Mr. consider as the act which is to be called Godfrey took the oath at the time of his the admission of Mr. Godfrey. It is cer. election, and likewise received the book tain that a fellow is not admitted, until and the keys.

And therefore It is contended, therefore, that having since the word admit, as I have already taken the oath, and received the book observed has a technical meaning, and the and keys, he was in fact admitted ; and statutes require that the master should be that his appearance in the hall proved that admitted; I understand them also to rehe was considered as complete master of quire, that a ceremony of admission shonld the college.

I have been told that If this reasoning be valid, and Mr. the head of a college does not think it Godfrey be held to have been admitted consistent with bis dignity to go down on at that time, we then come to the his knees before a senior fellow, who is question, did he, or did he not, within the his inferior in rank ; but the answer to this meaning of the Act of Charles II. (the is, that until the master elect is in comAct of Uniformity) make the declaration plete possession of his mastership, it is not which he was bound to make before, or at certain that the senior fellow is bis inferior his admission.

Then pleting the admission, in bodies where you come to this, this is so as to fellows adıission is required, the eircunstance and scholars, though there is no injunction that such ceremonies have been observed on the subject, except the word admit- is sufficient to prove that they must still tantur ; and the practice that lias long be continued; and therefore I do not prevailed. What then is the practice as think that Mr. Godfrey's admission was to the master? On this point we have completed on the Sunday, and consevery little evidence. No one seems to quently he subscribed in the presence of remember what passed at the election of the vice-chancellor before he was admitted Dr. Milner, and the most that we learn is, to his office. that lie was taken from the altar to his The only remaining question is, wheseat by the senior fellow.
