    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“That nature designed for our sex the care of children, she has made manifest by mental as well as physical indications.

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“If one seminary should be well organized, its advantages would be found so great that others would soon be instituted; and that sufficient patronage can be found to put one in operation may be presumed from its reasonableness and from the public opinion with regard to the present mode of female education.”
