THE STATE OF TEXAS

COUNTY OF MIDLAND

Personally appeared before me me, E.B. Lancaster, County Judge of Midland County, Texas, makes oath and says, that the foregoing is a correct abstract of the scholastic census of Midland County as returned by the Trustees of School District, composed of the County of Midland.

(Signed) E.B. Lancaster

Subscribed and sworn to this 18 day of July A.D. 1885.

(Signed) A.B. Rountree, Clerk County Court, Midland County, Texas

 

From a copy of "The Staked Plain" published January 28, 1886, Midland, Texas. "As soon as the assessments roll is completed and the amount of tax property in this school district is ascertained; steps will be taken to vote a tax for school purpose.

There can be no valid objection to voting the largest tax possible under the law (20 cents on the $100.) and we think will be generally acquiesced in. A building sufficient for two teachers will be required by next fall."

Thanks to Mrs. Ada Phillips.
