M.'s of that class is the person referred to. Next follow the forms of presenting and admitting candidates for degrees, --the same as those in use in President Dunster's time, as given by Quincy, I. 580, except that the "Placetne" is added in the margin. President Leverett notes that he took these forms from the archives of the College, 1 July, 1690. On the next page is an extract from the Statutes of the University of Oxford, the section "on the respect to be paid by Junior Students to their Seniors;" and then, after a break of several blank leaves, we have...show more
