THIS SCHOOL, designed only for the winter,
will be under the instruction of Miss MARY LYON, the ensuing season. The success
of the Sanderson Academy in Ashfield, the two winters past, under her care,
in addition to that of her private school in this place the two preceding winters,
has given her friends an increasing confidence in the utility of the plan. During
these four seasons, there has been a unity of object, though some additions
and improvements have been made every successive year. No long list of Books
has been presented to the public,- no pretence has been made to an extensive
course of study, not even compared with the length of the limited term of instruction.
But it has been the object to direct the attention of the young ladies to such
subjects, and in such a manner, as will assist in preparing them for active
life. It is the general testimony of the patrons of this SCHOOL, that its utility
has been particularly manifest in preparing teachers for district schools. In
promoting this object, the monitorial ystem, which has been united with
other methods of instruction, has turned to very good account.
The school will commence, Wednesday, Dec. 3d, for a term of 16 weeks.
Tuition, $4,00 for the term, to be paid
at entrance. Some remittance will be made to those who necessarily
leave the school on account of sickness.
Board, including fuel, and lights, may be obtained near the school for $1,17
a week. The number accommodated by one fire will not exceed four.
It is very important that the young ladies enter at the commencement of the
Books and Stationary can be procured near the school on reasonable terms.
