Circular Letter [ca. 1865], from Monticello Female Institute (Fairfield County, S.C.)

Printed manuscript, [ca. 1865], circular letter issued by Monticello Female Institute and signed in print by the Rev. J. Taylor Zealy announces that the "Third Session of this Institution will commence on the first Wednesday in January next."

Students were to be admitted for ten-month sessions which were divided into two five-month terms. Board and tuition for studies in English, music, French, Latin, and drawing were payable in advance. "The course of instruction," the circular claims, "is intended to develop the intellectual, social and moral faculties, and by imparting a thorough, practical, accomplished and Christian education, fit the pupil for the responsible duties that await her in life."
