likewise put into the Physic Place, which is now
vacant by Ejectment: And that these Two Doctors

Ejectment, videlicet, Doctor Medcalfe into Mr. Marshall's Fellowship, and Doctor Pratt into Mr. Nevill's
Fellowship; and that they, enjoying the Benefit of
Seniority according to the Seniority in the University, be likewise admitted into Two of the Places
of the Eight Seniors, to exercise the Power, receive
the Profits, and enjoy all the Privileges, belonging
to the Place of a Senior in Trinity Colledge."
