Excerpt from Jesus College, Oxford, and Cowbridge School: Remarks on "a Letter to H. Hussey Vivian, Esq., M. P." My attention has been drawn to a printed letter, addressed to Mr. Hussey Vivian m.p. By Dr. Harper, Principal of Jesus College, Oxford, which bears on a question now attracting public attention, viz. That of the claim of Cowbridge School to a larger endowment than is contemplated in the proposed Statutes for that College, now lying on the table of the House of Commons. All friends of the School are indebted to Dr. Harper for printing, as appendices to his letter, the Will of Sir Leoline Jenkins, and also the decree of Chancery, made in 1688, three years after the death of the Testator, inasmuch as both these documents tend very materially to strengthen the case of the School. Had Dr. Harper printed the codicils of the Will also, he would have further strengthened the case of the School. The omission is significant.
