The male teachers for the winter schools in these four districts were: Joseph S. Hastings, of Shrewsbury, for the Woburn Road school; P. R. Russell, Jr., for the West Cambridge Road school; William Sawyer, Jr., for Winter Hill; and Henry C. Allen, of Bridgewater, for Milk Row. All Were to begin the first Monday in December. Lewis Colby, ‘of Cambridge College,’ seems to have taken Mr. Hastings' place for a few weeks. January 18, 1830, ‘Mr. Allen requested to be relieved from further services on account of some unpleasant circumstances having occurred from want of suitable discipline in his school.’ His resignation was accepted, and Lewis Colby, ‘a member of the Cambridge school,’ was put in charge.

From bills approved we learn that Mr. Allen received $51.68; Mr. Hastings, $98; Mr. Russell, $120; Mr. Colby, $76.40; and Mr. Sawyer, $124. At the examination of No. 7, Messrs. Wyman and Jackson reported that Mr. Hastings had taught the school with much ability, and they were highly gratified. No. 6 was also commended by the examiners, Messrs. Wyman and Walker. Mr. Colby's school was examined by Chester Adams. Forty-eight were present out of a total of seventy-four. ‘This school has given the trustees much anxiety, but since it was under the present management it has improved, and appeared well at the examination.’ Captain Tenney examined No. 4 (Winter Hill). Thirty-five were present out of the fifty-two enrolled. ‘The captain did not commend the teacher or the school.’
