The Trustees of the People’s Academy take great pleasure in commending Mr. Phinney, the Principal, to the patronage of a liberal and enlightened community. Mr. Phinney’s reputation as an instructor is known throughout the State. Our testimony would not add to it. A competent young gentleman of exceptional character is engaged as assistant.
Mrs. Graves, late principal of one of the first Female Institutions in N.C., and her daughter, Miss Graves, will take charge of the Female Department. Mrs. Graves takes charge with twenty years’ experience of successful teaching, and the community may be assured that nothing shall be wanting to make that department worthy of liberal patronage. Instructions in Music, Painting, and Drawing will be given in a style not surpassed in the South.
