In reply to thy favor of the 3rd. inst. I am directed to state that the Comitee on Instruction of this Assocu propose to continue the schools now in operation under their care in Va: namely: 
On the Peninsula of Virginia four- at Yorktown, Williamsburg, Fort Magsuder, and Williams' District, establishing one or two others if it should seem desirable, these schools they will probably supply with a corps of fifteen or sixteen teachers.
They have also (included in the so-called North Carolina Circuit) a large well-grounded school at Danville, Va. this will be sustained and furnished with seven or eight teachers. The accompanying circular and Annual Report will give further information which may be of interest.Very respectfully  M.E. Shearman Actuary
