Dear Sir:

Have [[underlined]] Messrs Still [[/underlined]] and [[underlined]] Robt Guinney [[/underlined]] started for their schools?  They have not yet reported to me.  I was obliged to place another teacher at Forestville, where I proposed to send [[underlined]] Still, [[/underlined]] but when he calls on me I can place him in a situation which will be quiet as satisfactory.

[[underlined]] Wm. H. Chambers [[/underlined]] has had some trouble with the trustees at Robytown, and closed his school at the end of the month.  I offered him the school at Newburg, Chas.
