From Shattemuc Yacht Club History, The Republican 8.20.1887:

Ossining Institute. This Institution has passed from the care of the Rev. C. D. Rice, who has been at its head for the
last nine years, to the control of the Rev. F B Dwight, the pastor of the Presbyterian Church of the village, who
has assumed the responsibility of the management. It is his intention to place the school in the first rank with the
educational institutions for young women; and his varied and thorough scholarship, as well as his acquaintance
with the needs and requirements of such an institution, justify the highest expectations with regard to this
accomplishment of his purposes.
