This article from the Greenfield, Massachusetts, Gazette and Franklin Herald, addresses the influences that school masters have on their pupils. It preaches that a well educated population is in the best interest of the country. The second paragraph is an excerpt from an address by Gulian C. Verplanck. He was a member of the U. S. House of Representatives from 1825 to 1833, and a regent of the State University of New York from 1826-1870. He feels that the teacher is second only to the mother in molding the character of a child.
