Henderson, Missionary of the West Coast
McCracken., Poor Inspector
The claim or
request of Mrs McCoid to have her boy transferred from the Dangerland
School to the Ragged School is declined because it is considered that the
boy is being well enough attended to by the teacher of the Dangerland
School and if there be deficiency anywhere it is with the Mother who fails
to do her duty to the child by not enforcing his regular attendance.
