1875 Spring Term, Hallowell Classical School, Hallowell Maine

Folded paper pertaining to the Hallowell Classical School, Hallowell, Maine, and its 1875 Spring Term. 

This School, with its corps of efficient teachers, offers superior advantages for a thorough education at moderate charges.  Send for circulars to
Rev. H. F. Harding or Simon Page.

On the reverse is written the name Frank Bumpus and the word "order".  Whether the correct Frank or not, there was a Frank Bumpus in the 1880 Census, living in Shirley, Piscataquis County, Maine, a farmer, with children Ephraim, Willie, Mabel, Fred, Charlie, Albert, Linwood and Arthur.  Perhaps Frank sent for the circular, and this folded paper accompanied it.

If you have information to share on Rev. H. F. Harding, Simon Page and/or a Frank Bumpus, please leave a comment for the benefit of other researchers.
