O. [Ormond] Beatty L.L.D.
President of Centre College

It is, I presume, wholly unnecessary for me to state to the Board the reasons, in whole or in part, that have led me to this decision. Suffice it to say, that I am impressed with the conviction that it is my duty, as it is perhaps for the best interests of the Institution, that I should carry out the decision above indicated.
I make this formal statement to
