Ojiposite President's Square, I street, Washington,
(house of Col. Bomford, between
the residences of Mrs. Gen. Macomb and
Commodore Morris.)
MISS HEANEY, of Boston, Massachusetts,
Principal Instructress, respectfully invites the
attention of her friends, and parents and guardians
interested, to the he-establishment of her Academy,
hoping in their favor for the early entrance of the
boarding and day scholars she may receive, and for
whom every arrangement is made to insure, by her
own unremitted attention, thorough instruction, and
improvement in elementary and elevated learning,
with the best advantages of residence.
Miss H.'s Academy, being so eligibly placed in
the quiet neighborhood of many well-known families
near the President's House and the Departments,
in the family residence many years of Col. Bomford,
spacious and convenient, with its large gurden
and pleasant scenery, is esteemed the most desirable
in the vicinity for the charge. Miss H. resumes the
useful and liberal education of young ladies.
Employing her best abilities to make her Academy
permanent in thiB community, and encouraged
to trust that her task will ere long be favored by the
support it bespeaks, resident instructresses and other
professors of the highest skill and character will al
ways be engaged for any required aid; while Miss
Heuney, as Principal, will instruct her pupils individually
in whatever pursuits of learning or accomplishments
they may engage.
The government of these young ladies will be
that of home education of daughters, of her early
study and much experience in Miss Heuney's
charge of pupils in Boston, Washington, and elsewhere;
simply for the best individual improvement
of the talents, moral and mental culture of such
youth; regulations and order prescribed for them in
ihis family mode of living, as of tuition, study, employment,
and recreation, those only which arc due
to insure the entire welfure of daughters by maternal
education and care.
Young ladies may thus be residents in Miss Heaney's
Academy, having instruction for any acquirements
desired, exclusive of others, and may have
that leisure and intercourse with society, to which
the attention of parents, guardians, or Miss Hcaney,
may be duly given.
Morning exercises of instruction in the English
and French texts alternately, reading, elocution,
grammar, composition, geography, history, belles
letlrea, arithmetic, &c., including plain and elegant
penmanship, linear drawing of maps, tfce., elements
of music in singing, and tne primary exercises of
dancing, especially those most improving the demeanor
and health of the young.
