An ad placed in the Wenersborg newspaper by Johannes Josefsson Thorin promoting the opening of his new school in Örby, Sweden.
“With the assistance of good teachers, the undersigned is opening a school, where will be taught language, mathematics, penmanship, trade geography, bookkeeping, and the basics of drafting/construction…
“The teaching begins next August and continues for 20 weeks with approximately 36 teaching hours in a week. Every term will have an exit interview/test [confirm this]. Tuition is 60 crowns [confirm] for every course. Cheap and [reliable] housing. [There may be the option] to make a cheaper price for those who want it. [Reservation] for entrance in school needs to happen before the 10th of next July. Written questions/inquiries will be answered as they come. Through aligning myself in contract with “hadlande och industriidkare” I will seek to hold places for those whom from the school “afgå” with grades. The school’s [inspector] are: “Kontraktsprosten” Mr. A. H. Block and [secretary] Mr. Albert Evers, Örby.
“Örby, adress Kinna, in May 1887.
