A document stating that at a meeting of the faculty of the Collegiate Institution it was voted that the annual examination of the freshmen class was highly satisfactory, though the appearance of a few individuals was not as good as that of the class in general. However, it states, the faculty do not think any exceptions are necessary and thus consider the whole class advanced to the standing of sophomores. The document is signed by Heman Humphrey on behalf of the faculty. A note on the back of the document states "Results of examination August 23, 1824."
