Beneath the title are 27 lines of negative, one could say viperous comments on the school and its Board of Instruction Moses l. Morse and wife. The last sentence proposes to publish a thousand copies of the Circular with added detail monthly. Signed in type PER ORDER OF THE CITIZENS OF ANDOVER. Andover, NH, July, 1851. Moses Leland Morse was a graduate of Bowdoin.

No mention is made of any problems leading to this. Our copy was mailed from Boston to a Josiah Philbrock of Deerfield, NH [his address on verso, with Boston postal round stamp].
