AbstractThornton writes that he is grieved at the troubles between Wheelock and Kirtland. He warns that there has been “almost an outcry” over a misuse of the funds raised for the Indian Charity School, and that Whitaker is not well-liked in England. He hopes that reports of Occom drinking are untrue.
