Summary of Mr. Lockwood's reports upon Children Boarded-out under the care of the Milton Bryant Boarding-out Committee.


These boys we absent when the Home was visited.  The Foster-mother gave each a good character.  Joseph has passed the 5th and James the 4th Standard.  The Home is a Feoffe Cottage.  Water is derived from a spring about 100 yards from the house.  Both boys have enjoyed good health since arriving at Milton Bryant.

*** Isabella Steele is now in a situation and from letters to her late foster-mother would appear to be doing well.
