Euphemia Anderson has been a pupil in the Edinburgh ..... School here for four years and has during that period,behaved herself in the most satisfactory manner. She is a docile obedient and sweet tempered girl and has made excellent advances in the different classes through which she passed. The parents of the girls are steady, sober, honest and industrious persons. It will therefore yield us much pleasure to hear of the welfare and success of the family.
