Received Certificates

Dr. Romania B. Pratt’s obstetric class passed a very creditable examination before Drs. Anderson and Fowler, both of these professional gentlemen expressing themselves well satisfied with the progress the students had made and very willingly signed their certificates. The especial design of these classes is to render as efficient and practical assistance to the settlements as may be within the reach of their circumstances. The record of those taking this course has so far been very good, the students having been able to meet and overcome emergencies which otherwise might have resulted fatally. The following named ladies have received their certificates and been duly set apart for their work: Phoebe Holdaway, Provo City; Mary Hansen, Salt Lake City; Alice Taylor, American Fork; Hannah Wild, American Fork; Mary U. Oberhansley, Payson; Henrietta McCloy, South Cottonwood; Christina Anderson, Big Cottonwood. Dr. Pratt’s success is evinced by the opening on April 9th of the largest class yet assembled.
