When Mr. William Turpin died, he left a large sum with instructions that it be used for the "education and benefit of the colored people." This money was turned over to the Female Asylum for Colored Orphans. The writer believes this is a "mal-appropriation" of the funds and fears that the money will not be used as intended, even though he believes this is a worthy institution.
