I hereby certify that Mr. Wm. B. Mackay attended the Class of Moral Philosophy during the session 1857-8, with great regularity; that his conduct, as far as known to me, was quite correct and unexceptionable; that he prepared with care the whole of the essays and exercises prescribed; and that these, together with his appearance in the course of the ordinary examinations, were such as to entitle him to honourable mention at the end of the session.
