                On motion of Mr. Bowie, the following order was read and

                Ordered that a committee to consist of five Electors be appointed
by the chair to prepare and report the Form of certificates

said Committee, towit:  Messrs. Bowie, Ricaud, Coale, Hoffman
and Burchenal.
                On motion of Mr. Brown, it was ordered that the committee appointed
to prepare a Form of Certificates be directed also to enquire
with the necessity of qualification by the Electors, before
proceeding to the Election of President and Vice President of
the United States.
                Mr. Bowie from the said Committee reported the following
resolution, which was read and adopted.
                Resolved, that it is expedient that the Electors should
qualify before they proved to discharge the trust reposed in
them.
                Accordingly, the Electors present, severally qualified by
taking the oath prescribed by the Constitution and Laws, and
by declaring this belief in the Christian Religion.
                The President laid before the Electors the three certificates
required by law to be delivered to the Electors by the Executive
Authority of the State, which were read and ordered to be on the
table.
                John S. Purnell Esquire, who had been duly proclaimed
by the Executive Authority of the State, elected one of the Electors of
President and Vice President of the United States, in and for the
State of Maryland, not having appeared in the Senate chamber,

adopted:
                Ordered, that we now proceed to file the vacancy existing
in this College, agreeably to the Act of Assembly of December Session
