Can you help improve this?
These improvements were made without proper authority of the De partment, and with the knowledge that they were so made at the air own risk: in my judgment these improvements were necessary for the proper and successful conduction and maintain ance of the school, and the Home Board of Missions or the Presbyterian Church should be re- imbursed in whole or in part, for said improvements, ex cept ing items 20, 21, 22 and 23; the labor performed in this paint ing was done by school employers and school pupils: the material only should be charged for, The average attendance of pupils for the fiscal year was I boys and 34 girls, total IO5, and for the month of July, 1888, 87 boys and 34 girls, total 121.
