The price which is usually paid by the pupils for board, (not including washing, or fire and lights,) is $2.50 per week. For the assistance of those who would find even the light expenses of the School burdensome, the Commonwealth makes an annual appropriation of a thousand dollars. One half of this amount is distributed at the close of each term, among pupils from Massachusetts who may merit and need the aid, in sums varying according to the distance of their residence from Salem, and their necessary expenses in attending the School, but not exceeding in any case $1.50 per week.
