APPENDIX D.
REPORT ON JEWESS SCHOOLS IN MOROCCO.
April—August, 1881.
I.—TANGIER.
The Jewish community of this town obtained from the Moorish Government, through the intervention of His Excellency Sir John Drummond Hay, a freehold piece of ground, upon which the present School-house has been erected. His Excellency s action in this matter was approved by Her Majesty's Government.
The School-house is a substantial and well-ventilated building, in every way creditable to the community of Tangier. It was fortunately erected at a time when the cost of building was at its lowest—-it cost the community one thousand pounds; at the present time a similar building would cost more than twice this sum.
