394 Thomas Hollis “2nd” to Edward Wigglesworth

    London July 20, 1732

    Dr. Wigglesworth

    Your obligeing Letter of the 25 April came safe to hand. I am pleased my small donation is acceptable to you and that as by the providence of God itts become more needfull itt may prove the more usefull.

    I have shewed your Letter to my father wherein the difficulty in the Choice of Indian students appear and have conveyed his Thoughts on the Matter in my Letter to Mr. President Wadsworth. Mr. Professor Greenwood has favoured me with a Letter which I answer with a Return (I hope) of a few usefull instruments, that may with pleasure fill up a part of his Vacant Hours and furnish some instructive Lessons to his pupills. My earnest prayers are for your welfare and usefullness as I trust yours are for mine. With hearty affection I am


    Your faithfull friend and servant

    Tho. Hollis
