Descrizione

This was the origin of the famous Beauchamp School, which the marquis endowed with five thousand livres, to which he bequeathed his portrait in oils and many of his books, and in which he exacted that the teaching of the French language' be obligatory. Nor was any man to be considered qualified for the position of master unless he were able to speak the language fluently, Write it with ease, and be conversant with its literature. The marquis's host was made the first trustee, and the responsibilities of that office had descended from father to son to the third generation — eldest son to eldest son. The last master, long a fixture, had but recently died; and young John Terrence, returning after four years of foreign travel and study to the Island home of his fathers, found himself unexpectedly con fronted with the necessity of finding some one suitable to fill the vacancy before the opening of the fall term.
