Note.-The foregoing sketch gives the names of the three gentlemen composing the School Committee, as recalled by the present writer. Could the wildest visionary dream there would come a time when a woman would be appointed “school committee man” ?
My prisoned memory felt glad release,
And I went bravely on and “said my piece.”
Our trials o'er, “the chair” made an oration,
Found some improvement in our “pronounsation” ;
We heard the words “deportment,” “approbation,”
Took a long breath, and a whole week's vacation.
