Institute for Young Ladies -- January 9, 2013

I assume that Madame Van Der Weyde from France is Jeannette W Van der Weyde, wife of Doctor PH Van der Weyde, who wrote the articles which gave this blog its name.  Jeannette Van der Weyde was French and she had taught a school in their home in the Netherlands.  This ad is from the 28-August-1855 New York Tribune.
