House. Comm. on Education. Report on Duke's County Academy petition, 1835
House No. 58 On March 16, 1835, the Committee on Education submitted a report: Duke's County Academy had been incorporated for two years, and had
built a building, but don't have enough money to open the school. In 1797, if a county could raise $3,000 to support a school, it could receive half
of a township in the public lands to sell for additional money. Duke's County tried at the time, but could not raise $3,000, but it would like to have
the grant now. The Committee decided other counties had received their grant later, and no private interest would be harmed by such a grant, so why
not? Resolve in aid of Duke's County, 1835. If Duke's County could raise $3,000, including the value of its new building, then it would receive a
matching grant from the treasury of the Commonwealth. (Digitized from a microfilm copy of title originally held by the Massachusetts State Library).
Title:   The Committee on Education to whom was referred the petition of the trustees of Duke's County Academy, for an appropriation in aid of that institution, have considered the same, and submit the following report.
