Transcription of article


A happy suggestion was made by Mr. Savory, that a prize should be offered to the children of our day schools, for the best essay written by the children, in order to encourage original thought and composition. The subject selected was "The Harvest," and essays were written by 17 children. The first prize (given by Mr. Savory) was awarded to Douglas McDonald, the second prize (given by the Vicar), to Arthur Summerton, and the third prize (given by Mrs. Savory), to George Collet.
