Book describing Rutgers' mathematical education efforts for women.

From Preface
"More than twenty years ago, the Rutgers Female Institute was the pioneer of those Institutions which have since followed her lead, in establishing a high standard of female education; in offering an opportunity and all necessary appliances for developing the female mind in strength and understanding; and by rigid and systematic training in bringing to that high culture, for which it had been thought incapable or unfitted.

The best evidence we can offer our patrons of the efficiency and usefulness of the Rutgers Institute in the cause of female education, is, undoubtedly, the living testimony of the six thousand young ladies who have enjoyed its advantages. These have borne for the Institute, into every part of our land, a reputation, for solid intellectual acquirement, elegant accomplishments, and healthful moral and religious training."
