The last installment in Wheelock's series of publications continuing his history of the first Indian school in America. The series began with his A PLAIN AND FAITHFUL NARRATIVE OF THE ORIGINAL DESIGN... (Boston, 1763), which covered the years 1754-62. The present volume gives an account of the history from September 1773 through February 1775. The school, founded by Wheelock, opened in 1754 under the name of the Moors Charity School. In 1772 it was removed to Hanover "where it formed the germ of the institution, known as Dartmouth College" (Field). While some copies of this work were issued with thirty- one pages, the present volume is the complete fifty-four- page imprint, containing the school budget and an appendix narrative. EVANS 14623.
