The Union School house has 200 chairs, Hemenway, 150. So
jou will see that 350 children conld find free seats for a term
of eight months Our schools closed June 10th, 1870, yet
there were changes, and I find that there were during that
term 271 difl[erent scholars in the " Union," and 17G in the
" Harmony''—making a total of 447 pupils who received
instruction some portion of the school year.
This mission was organized Jan. 9th, 1867, under the aus-pices
of the Soldier's Memorial Society of Boston, Mass., and
the American Unitarian Association. I commenced, alone,
with three pupils, but the number increased so rapidly that I
was obliged to employ two assistants before the Term closed.
During the third year, a new school house was erected in the
northern part of the city ; then four extrateachers were em-ployed,
and I gave up teaching—taking only the superinten-dence
of the Mission. A school was opened at the "Sound,"
but discontinued at the end of that year. Another room was
added to the Union School House, thus employing the same
number of teachers.
