(St. Albans Messenger - May 31, 1904)

The four schools in the village closed Friday uniting with exercises at the New Hampton Institute hall. The pupils did well and showed good work and training on the part of their respective teachers. Remarks were made by I. E. Hunt and F. W. Shepardson which were appropriate for the occasion. Mr. Shepardson very feelingly bade adieu to the New Hampton Institute and its future work as it makes its exit as a school and welcomed the work of the Bellows Free Academy in its advent.
