Miss Hardy, a teacher sent out by the Am Miss Assn. has reached here, will begin her school tomorrow. Mrs. Howard will commence her school tomorrow or the next day - There hardly seems to be a necessity for a fourth school at present. I wish however you would visit the Village, and better, determine for yourself whether it is advisable for Miss [[Crane?]] to come, or for this [[Colored?]] association to attempt to emply a teacher from their own class. I will forward [[Mrs Rossiter's?]] report for Oct. if she gets it ready.

Very truly yrs
