TRENTON FEMALE ACADEMY, 1888.
The Trustees of this academy would respectfully inform its patrons and the public generally, that the First Session will close on the 15th of Dec. next. They would also announce to the public that they have engaged the services of Miss Parker for the ensuing year; and the second session will commence on the first Monday of January, 1838, and close on the 15th of June, ensuing. From the rapid increase of the school (numbering about 40 pupils) parents and guardians would do well to enter their children and wards early. Board in the families at Trenton, at $6 per month. Tuition—six, eight, and twelve dollars per session.
