OFFICE OF SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION,
FRANKFORT, KY., Sept. 1st, 1877. }
To Commissioners of Common Schools:
By a resolution of the Colored State Convention you were requested to form County Institutes and Associations, to be composed of the teachers and trustees of colored common schools, and such representative friends of education whose co-operation is deemed desirable.
The Superintendent has considered this matter, and concluded to direct that, in those counties where colored schools are sufficiently numerous, Institutes and Associations should be formed, under the statutes. In counties where ten teachers and the trustees can be gotten together, these Institutes and Associations should be formed. I do not deem it desirable to exact any matriculation fee of the members in organizing. Try and secure voluntary conductors of these Institutes and Associations. Doubtlessly, the white teachers of your respective counties will co-operate cheerfully with you, as this is a field inviting the philanthropic spirit to exercise. Should you propose to organize an Institute, inform me of your purpose, and I will send you circulars announcing it.
H. A. M. Henderson, Superintendent of Public Instruction
