Mr. Phillips thankful for the patronage extend to him during the last 18 years, would respectfully
inform the Parents of the Pupils now under his tuition, that hi age prevents him extending to his fifty
Pupils the instruction he conceives encumbered upon him. He therefore considers it necessary to
reduce his school to twenty five, from the first of April next. Being willing and desirous to retain and
continue instructions to those of his Pupils who have commenced with him, or been under his
instruction for two or three years, he respectfully notifies their parents that his charges in future will be
$6 a quarter, and $8 a quarter for branches unconnected with an English education.
Parents wishing to continue their children on those terms will be so kind as to secure seats, as soon as
convenient before the 1st proimo.
George L. Philips
