Description
Wheelock's son, who says he must go home next vacation, will bear this; he has been better able to study this winter, and would have made a fine scholar had he been so all along; David Smith, a former pupil who has been teaching school in Charlestown, S. C., desires an assistant; he has thought of [John] Lathrop and Davies; asks him to find out if Lathrop would go; Kirtland [Samuel Kirkland] has done well; he will try to get him some small assistance, as his means are so strait; he has read Wheelock's Narrative, and commends it; wishes him success in his undertaking; Wheelock's son will make no mean figure in the ordinary time, if he has health, but if he is to be his father's successor he should be better than common.
