Excerpt from The Twenty-Fourth Annual Report of the Receipts and Expenditures of the Town of Dorchester, With Reports of the Selectmen, Auditors, and Chief Engineer of the Fire Department, for the Year Ending January 31st, 1862 The system of Public Schools is a blessing which has descended to us from our ancestors, and for which we owe them a debt of gratitude, providing, as it does for each and every child of every. Rank and condition in life, that degree of education which is necessary to prepare them for the ordinary and practical duties of life, and for taking part in the affairs of the govern ment. Its benefits are so generally appreciated by our citizens, that they are easily reconciled to any reasonable expense in this department. Care, however, should be taken to prevent waste or extravagance, and to economise in every way where it can be done without detriment to the schools. A Committee chosen for the purpose by the Town have purchased an eligible lot of land containing feet, and bounded on three sides by streets, for the sum of dollars, and have caused a noble building with all the modern improvements to be erected thereon for the use of the Adams School. There has been paid towards its erection 11080 dollars, and there still remains due about 900 dollars. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
