A. J. Craio, Esq.,

SupefintenderU Public Irutmetum:

Dear Sib:— In reply to your request of September 80, I send the inclosed
imperfect report of our embryo college, the best I could do under the cir-
cumstances, and have been somewhat delayed in making this by my personal
business. There were only two of the three terms of the current year that
we had any principal or teachers previous to August 81, 1868. The institu-
tion is again opened under Professor Perry, as principal, assisted by compe-
tent teachers, in accordance with the prospectus herewith forwarded, and
we hope to make it a success.

Respectfully yours,

E. W. PELTON.

President of Board of Truttee$,

EVANSVILLB SXMINABT, EVAITSVILLE, Wis., Oct. 9, 1868.

Hon. A. J. Craig,

Superintendent of Public Instruction^ State of Wieeowiin.

Dear Sir: Evansville Seminary has not been as prosperous this season as
its oflScers had desired. Several cauaes contributed to that efifect, among
which its financial embarrassment was the most weighty. This institution
has been laboring under financial difficulties since its foundation, and it was
feared for a time it would have to succumb under its heavy burden. This
season an earnest and pressing appeal was made by the Board of Trustees to
the friends of the institution and it proved a success. All claims were re-
moved and provisions made to erect another building for seminary purposes.
The institution is now undergoing repair<t and is to be newly refitted, in order
to make it a^ inviting and attractive as any in the State. With the increased
facilities, added to our other advantages, we trust to report next year a
complete success.

Yours, very truly,

DANIEL JOHNSON,
President of Board of Trustees.
