Description

Excerpt from Ten Years' Work for Indians at the Hampton Normal and Agricultural Institute, at Hampton, Virginia, 1878-1888 These conditions have greatly hampered the work at Hampton, as elsewhere. It has been further burdened here by the special work it alone has undertaken, of receiving young married couples and families for instruction in housekeeping and domestic life, as well as English and trades. Six cottages have been built for such families, and have been occupied bya succession of them. Seven Indian children have been born here. Besides the services of the resident physician, the school has an excellent trained nurse in charge of the boys' hospital, and another in charge of the Indian girls and women. The hospital given by King's Chapel, Boston, is admirably ar ranged and fitted up, and has saved lives of both colored and Indian boys.
