Colored Children in Boston Schools

Colored Scholars In the Boston Schools  —  Since the advent of the colored children into the Boston public schools, several have had diplomas awarded them; but the honor of being the first recipient of a City Medal has been achieved this year by Miss Mary Louisa Lockley, of the Bowdoin School. Her composition, (subject – ‘Conversation’,)  penmanship, diagrams, and other exercises, were highly meritorious.
