a Benefactions to medical departments of some colleges are not separated from the general beneface tions to those colleges.

Considerably more money tas been pledged to educational institntions during the period covered by this report than is presented in the foregoing table, for the reason that special care has been taken to include such moneys only as appear from returns, or, as have been learned by special inquiry, to bo actually in the possession of or secured to the institutions.

Owing to the brief time allowed for the preparation of this report, no effort has been made to learn the benefactions to any class of institutions, excepting those to which forms contaiuing the question of benefactions were sent.

Letters have been written concerning newspaper notices of benefactions, only in cases in wbich there was almost conclusive evidence that considerable sums biad been given, the omission of which would be noticeable.
