The Professors, unless specially exempted, are to reside constantly at Cambridge; having chambers in the College, or dwelling near it. The Tutors, the Librarian, the Regent, and the Proctors, shall have chambers in the College. The oflicers living in the College are to be in Commons, unless exempted, in case of sickness, by vote of the Corporation, and in other cases by the Corporation with the assent of the Overseers. 5. " The Tutors shall be chosen for a term not exceeding three years, at the expiration of which a new election shall be made by the Corporation and presented to the Overseers for their acceptance." 6. The Librarian, chosen in like manner for three years, shall have like power and authority as the Tutors, and act with the Immediate Government. 7. The Regent, Proctors, and Assistant Librarian, shall exercise the same inspection and authority as a parietal Tutor. The Regent is to make up the quarter bills, and also to keep the book of absences. 8. "Whereas it is inexpedient, on divers accounts, that any Class should make presents to any one in the instruction or government of the College, it is expected, that the President, Professors, Tutors, and Librarian, discourage any attempt to make and absolutely decline accepting any such presents." 9. " No person shall sustain any office in the executive part of the Government of the College, who has the pastoral care of a church, or who holds any civil office, except the office of justice of the peace; and whoever shall accept such pastoral care, or any civil office, except that of justice of the peace, shall be considered as resigning his place at College, and the same shall be void, and a new election shall take place...".show more
