From far Formosa (1896) by G.L. Mackay
“The women are taught reading, writing, and singing, Bible history and geography, the Scripture catechisms, and also attend addresses in the college during the day and take part in recitations and other exercises in the evening. They are trained in methods of teaching, and in every way equipped for their work….they are brought into touch with the stronger and healthier life at the center.” (p.306)
