The American Freedmen Vol 1, Issue 2 (1866)
The Northwestern Freedmen's Aid Commission had fifty-four teachers in the field, of whom fifty-one have furnished
regular reports. As in the case above stated, part of the others were in school only a portion of the month. The schools
at Aberdeen and Port Gibson, Miss., were organized during the month; those at Fort Scott, Kansas, and Mobile, Ala.,
were in progress and reports should have been received. It is to be regretted that the Mobile school was not regularly
reported, as it is one of the most successful under this Commission. The estimates in this case are based upon some
facts at hand. A letter in the March Bulletin from the field agent for the Mississippi Valley warrants the remark in regard
to the relative importance of this school.
