Nathaniel Whitaker, letter, to Eleazar Wheelock, 1767 February 12


[note (type: abstract): Whitaker writes regarding several matters, including the slanders of the New England Company, General Lyman's progress in obtaining land, the necessity of formalizing the Charity School accounts, and the disbursement of a shipment of books. He notes that Whitefield suggests sending Indian baskets to the wives of donors, and that Occom proposes Long Island as a suitable new location for an Indian school.][note (type: handwriting): Handwriting is small and crowded, yet mostly clear and legible. On two verso, the date of receipt is in Wheelock's hand; the other trailer is in an unknown hand.][note (type: paper): Large sheet folded in half to make four pages is in fair condition, with moderate staining, creasing and wear. A tear on the outer edge of two recto/verso results in some loss of text.][note (type: noteworthy): In the last paragraph of one recto, the identity of "Young Johnson" is uncertain, and so he has been left untagged. However, he is likely John Johnson[pers0621.ocp]. If Whitaker's intention regarding a word or abbreviation is uncertain, the word or abbreviation has been left unmodified in the modernized transcription. The postscript is written on the crease between one verso and two recto.][note (type: signature): The letter is signed twice, both times abbreviated.]

What availeth the  rage of the enemies of our reigning, almighty [Jeſus | Jesus]JeſusJesus! it will only  work for the [accompliſhment | accomplishment]accompliſhmentaccomplishment of his own [moſt | most]moſtmost glorious [purpoſes | purposes]purpoſespurposes.  Why then should we be ever [caſt | cast]caſtcast down, or be filled with anxious  fear, since we know the will of him, [whoſe | whose]whoſewhose will is ours, if we are as  we [ſho’d | should]ſho’dshould be, will be done — even so Amen, [& | and]&and Amen —

O that God  may give the Amen; [& | and]&and make you the father of many nations  that your crown of Glory may be great in yonder happy world;  [& | and]&and may I hope to come in for a humble share [thro’ | though]thro’though the merit of  our glorious [Emanuel | Emmanuel]EmanuelEmmanuel! — I am really glad you [ purpoſe | propose] purpoſepropose [in‐ ſiſting | in‐ sisting]in‐ ſiſtingin‐ sisting on a [coppy | copy]coppycopy of Olivers[pers0031.ocp] letter to Mauduit[pers0365.ocp]: You will then see  how near themy memory retained the Ideas [convaid | conveyed]convaidconveyed in it, which I  verily believe are according to the true intent of the letter, [& | and]&and as  near their own words as I can remember. I wrote you a long  heap of stuff a few days [paſt | past]paſtpast, [& | and]&and some things of moment — I saw  [G. | Gen.]G.Gen.
