Those who wish information respecting his qualifications as a Teacher, are referred to the Recommendation of Wm. J. Bingham, and that of the Faculty at Chapel Hill, given below.


Lincolnton, (Lincoln Co., N.C.) February 21, 1834.


I have had the pleasure of a long and intimate acquaintance with Mr. George W. Morrow. We were school-fellows in youth; we were in College together; and for several years we have been teachers in the same county, and occasionally attending each other's examinations. I do conscientiously declare that his standing, as a Gentleman, a Christian, a Scholar, and a Teacher, is high, deservedly high. The examinations of his Scholars, which I have several times witnessed, and in part conducted, always afforded ample testimony, as well of the fidelity, as the ability, of their Teacher. Teachers, of Mr. Morrow's qualifications--practical, moral, and literary--are very rare, and ought to be highly appreciated.

W.J. Bingham

January 18th, 1834. Principal of the Hillsborough Academy--Orange County, N.C.

Mr. George W. Morrow has for some time been engaged as a Teacher of an Academy in the neighborhood of this place, and has given proof of success in preparing students for the University, which has been highly satisfactory. In proof of this, a number of instances might be especially enumerated, in young gentlemen who have been students of the University, and who have been highly respectable, both for scholarship and moral deportment, while members of the institution.

JOSEPH CALDWELL, President of the University.
