Description
A report had spread that Joseph, who was formerly with Wheelock, had put himself at the head of a body of Indians to fight the English; it had gained such credit that a memorial lately sent to the General Assembly for a further improvement of Sir Peter Warren's legacy was suspended until this report should be cleared up; not only his school, but the Indian cause in general might suffer from it; he had not been able to do more than ridicule the idea; asks for a line from Sir William, and desires his love to Joseph, who will still be welcome to the school.
