Corner of Ninth and Greene streets
First Associate Reformed Presbyterian
Church —corner of Fifth and Pine streets.

This church, whose name does not indicate her principles, had her
origin in a secession from the General Assembly of hte Church of Scot-
land, A. D.1733.

She is Presbyterial in her government and discipline, and Calvanistic
in her doctrines.

Among the principal promoters of this secession were the Rev.Reverend Ebe-, and RalphErskine, , and JamesFisher, , (author of a large Cate-
chism, explanatory of the Westminster divines’ ‘‘Shorter Catechism.’’
This large catechism is highly prized throughout the Presbyterian
churches of the United States, and is commonly known by the name of
Fisher and Erskines’ Catechism)

Another promoter of this secession was the Rev.Reverend ThomasBoston, , ce-
lebrated in the Presbyterian churches of these United States as the author of various standard theological works, of which the most generally
known is that one entitled, ‘‘Man’s four-fold state.’’ Many of these se-
ceders having in the progress of time emigrated to America, considered
that many of the same reasons for separation from the General Assem-
bly of Presbyterians existed also in America, and therefore continued a
distinct denomination, and assumed the name of Associate Reformed

Graduation fee, $20; Matriculation fee, $5.

Students before applying for the degree of M. D. are required to at-
tend two full courses in this institution, or one in some respectable school,
and the last in this, and to be of good moral character.

If a practitioner of Medicine apply, he shall give evidence of his hav-
ing been in a reputable practice for three years, and have attended one
course in this institution.

The regular lectures will commence on the first Monday of Novem-
ber next, and terminate on the 1st of March. The room for practical
Anatomy will be open during the month of October, and lectures free of
expense will be delivered to the pupils in attendance.

Board can be obtained in the city of St. Louis as cheap as in any city
in the West where there is a medical school. A cheaper ;market cannot
be found in any city on the continent; and there is no good reason why
boarding should not be cheaper here than elsewhere. Good boarding
can be obtained for from $3 to $5 per week.
