A MESSAGE TO SUPERINTENDENT OF COMMON SCHOOLS IN 1860
1860 April 16. To Mr. Samuel Terry, Superintendent of Common Schools. Dear Sir,
this is to inform you that it is impossible for me to leave home, as my son's wife is
dying at my house at this time and I cannot leave. Will you be obliging enough to take
the written Petition before the Superintendent of Common Schools this day and advocate
it as I promised the neighbors and subscribers to attend to it this day as it will be
of great benefit to the citizens of this neighborhood.
Also, appoint a School Committee.
The subscribers will take it on themselves to furnish one acre of land and build a
sufficient house for the School to be taught. Yours Truly Respectfully. E. T. Long.
N. B. I would recommend for the School Committee T. W. Moody, Mial T. Long and J. T. Barton
