This pamphlet is a detailed description of the broad curriculum and philosophy of the school, which also featured a ""Little Boys Department,"" for the young brothers of female students. Meritocracy is stressed: ""The rich and poor may here meet and tread the paths of literature and science together .. The doors of the institute will never be closed against a deserving young lady who pants for knowledge, but has not the pecuniary means at present to gratify her thirst for learning."" The Rev. T. C. Teasdale, pastor of the Springfield Baptist Church, was principal of the school. The ten members of the school's Board of Examiners are listed, including ""Hon. A. Lincoln."" This is a sole edition of a rare Illinois imprint with pink printed wrappers, stitched . Pp. 16. One name neatly excised from text.
