Eleazar Wheelock, letter, to Robert Keen, 1766 December 4

ms-number766654.1

[note (type: abstract): Wheelock writes to Keen about money matters, selecting a potential site for the School, and the controversy regarding the letter sent to England by the New England Company. He also introduces William Samuel Johnson, newly appointed as Special agent for the Colony of Connecticut.][note (type: handwriting): The letter appears to be written in two different hands, one Wheelock's, the other unknown. It is alternately formal and clear, and informal and less clearly legible.][note (type: paper): Large single sheet is in fair condition, with moderate staining, creasing and wear. There is preservation work done on particularly heavy creases.][note (type: ink): Dark brown.][note (type: noteworthy): In the deleted section on one verso, the identity of "Mr. P. . . . . . .n" is uncertain, and so he has been left untagged. However, he is likely Ebenezer Pemberton[pers0415.ocp]. This document is very likely a draft. A note, possibly 19th-century, has been added in pencil after the trailer. This note has not been included in the transcription.]
