Parents of children attending the Hunter Grammar School charged that principal Anna Scull had promoted the Lutheran Reformation and criticised the Roman Catholic Church. For example, "According to Miss Scull's teaching, Pope Leo X SOLD indulgences. Had she any conception of the enormity of such an allegation in Catholic eyes... This was serious teaching for Miss Scull to venture upon, in the course of the lesson in spelling."
This pamphlet delineates the charges, presents the testimony, and the decision of the school board unanimously dismissing the case against Principal Scull.
