"The Village College would have in it all the conditions of permanence. It will be formed by welding together existing institutions already planted deep in the habits and affections of the people. Its activities will have statutory authority, and statutory financial support, and its financial stability is therefore guaranteed."

"Finally, the Village College would not outlive its function, for the main reason that it would not be committed to any intellectual or social dogma or to any sectional point of view. Intellectually it might be one of the freest of our English Institutions".
