Whereas, by chapter forty-seven, Private Laws of one thou- sand eight hundred and eighty-seven, the colored Orphar Asylum of North Carolina was created a body corporate under and by which an orphanage for the care and maintenance, anc the mental, moral and industrial education and training of colored orphan children was established at Oxford, in Granville County; and, Whereas, the General Assembly has heretofore made ap- propriations to said institution and such appropriations have increased from year to year; and, Whereas, it is desired that the charter of said corporation be amended so that it may more readily conform to the desires of the General Assembly with respect to the expenditure of the funds appropriated by it to said institution; Now, therefore, The General Assembly of North Carolina do enact:
