From William Logan, B. A., London University, Rector Dalmonach School, Vale of Leven, Dumbarton. 30th January, 1862

It gives me much pleasure to express the very high opinion I entertain of Miss Hay's character and professional qualifications. As a Teacher, she has been eminently successful—zealously devoting the whole of her energies to her School duties. In her School, she maintains perfect order, and from the lively manner in which she imparts instruction, carries the attention of the children wholly along with her, while the general kindliness of her manner endears her to all.
From personal acquaintance, I can testify that she brings to her work a mind unusually well informed, and is thoroughly skilled in all the most approved methods of imparting Instruction, usually followed in the best conducted schools. Miss Hay has given very great satisfaction as a Teacher while in the Vale of Leven, and I am confident that to whatever School she may hereafter be appointed, she will be equally successful.
