This is the third one of these school catalogues I've had -- the 17th, the 13th, and now the THIRD. This one is bit slimmer than the later ones, but it's especially interesting to see the Female Seminary in its early days. The number of students are impressive -- five pages of girls' names. Most were Ohioans, but other places are recorded too -- Indianapolis; Erie PA; Davenport, Iowa; Springfield, Mass.; Rockford, Illinois; Macon, Georgia; Mackinac, Michigan, St. Paul, Minnesota; Buffalo, New York; Fort Wayne, Indiana; Grand Rapids, Michigan; New Haven CT.; St. Louis, MO., and Crawfordsville...
