A resolution, adopted by the Board of Trustees, June 21st, 1867 :

Resolved, That the thanks of this Board be tendered to Col. THOMAS H. BENTON, Jr., for his address this day delivered, on the history of the State University of Iowa, and that he be requested to furnish a copy of the same for the use of the Institution.

The Board having decided at its last annual meeting to print the address, it has been carefully revised, and submitted to the criticism of several gentlemen, who are most familiar with the subject matter, and it is believed to be as nearly authentic as the sources of information, for the period it embraces, will admit. The accompanying map has been prepared from the United States surveys of that date, and is furnished free of expense to the Board.

THE AUTHOR. September, 1876.
