Lucy was a Keeper

Our teacher Lucy Crocker is back again; engaged to teach the next term at $9.00 a month and board. Harmon (possibly Herman) Landon in November gets $12.00 a month plus board to teach. Then Lucy returns at $9.00, beginning the first day of school - April 24th, 1821.

It seems the women are engaged for the summer, a shorter term and one that presumably is more girl students than mixed boys and girls as the young men would be busy helping bring in the crops.
