Being elected, in 1779,
one of the Visitors of William and Mary College,
a self-electing body, I effected, during
my residence in Williamsburg [as Governor of
the State] that year, a change in the organization
of that institution, by abolishing the Grammar
school, and the two professorships of Divinity
and Oriental languages, and substituting
a professorship of Law and Police, one of Anatomy,
Medicine and Chemistry, and one of
Modern Languages; and the charter confining
us to six professorships, we added the Law of
Nature and Nations, and the Fine Arts to the
duties of the Moral professor, and Natural History
to those of the professor of Mathematics
and Natural Philosophy.—
