General note

Dunmow is an ancient market town on the River Chelmer in the county of Essex in northeast England. It is now called Great Dunmow and encompasses the tiny village of Little Dunmow. Samuel Wood wrote to Whitaker that he sent a letter of recommendation as well as a "Pamphlet" (Wheelock's "Narrative") and "the Testimonials" of Wheelock's School's success to the minister or principal person of Dunmow in anticipation of a visit from Occom and Whitaker on their fundraising tour of England in the Fall of 1767.
