s taught by women were established, remaining until April, 1820.
Nathaniel Cogswell took charge of the school which Miss Gray had taught during the six months summer term as voted by the town, and continued in office till November, 1820, displacing the master of the boys' school.
There are indications of dissension at the time these changes were made, possibly dissatisfaction with the teachers, possibly with the system.
The school committee advertised for a male teacher in the spring of 1820, and among a batch of letters of application that in some way escaped destruction are those of both Mr. Kendall and Mr. Gray.
Neither of them seems to have been acceptable to the committee.
Nathaniel Cogswell was continued through the summer, and in the winter William H. Furness taught a term, and as no other man seems to have been employed with him the second room was probably unoccupied.
