242 Cotton Mather to Thomas Prince

    [Boston, January 10 1721/22]


    My two worthy Neighbours were gone out this morning earlier than I imagined. And I have not been very well. But being willing to contribute my poor sentiments upon a point about which you are labouring, I have here enclosed them. I am so very (willingly) ignorant of all that is done about the Colledge, that I do not know whether there be one [pertinent?] word on the schedule. But if there be not, you’l [especially?] pardon


    Your Brother and servant

    C. Mather

    [Addressed:] To the Reverend Mr. Thomas Prince.

    Mather ms, Houghton Library. Prince (A.B. 1707) was a minister of the Old South Church, Boston. The following document, addressed to Peter Thacher and John Webb, is the enclosure to which Mather refers.
