Chapel Hill, Nov. 29th 1861
The Faculty of the University having considered the present troubled condition of the country, & its probable effect on the fortunes of this Institution, have resolved
That the President of the University be requested to make known to the Trustees their purpose to remain at their posts of duty, to divide among themselves as evenly as possible, the labors of instruction, & to aid in whatever way they can the interests of the Institution: &, in order to relieve, so far as they may, the cares of the Trustees touching the pecuniary affairs of the college, they are disposed to accept such compensation for their services as, under these circumstances, the Trustees may judge best for the Institution & for them.
