That Mr. William B. Mackay has been known to me for several years, and I have much pleasure in stating—which I can do with confidence—that I consider him a young man of excellence and worth; that lie taught the F.O. School, Killean, for two years, and that during that time I witnessed the examination of his school several times, and I have to state that I have been highly satisfied and greatly delighted with the appearance which his scholars made in all the branches taught—namely, mathematics, geography, Latin, Greek, tire. I have therefore no hesitation in stating that I consider him a teacher of the first order; and wherever he may be employed, I heartily say that that place will be highly favoured. Is attested by
(Signed) John Campbell.
