749 | To the Rev. Samuel Seabury

    Boston Feb 27 1769


    I have just received your Letter of Feb 13.1 Above a fortnight ago I signed a Paper declaring that I had no Knowledge of the Letter signed B.W. till after I saw it in Print.2 Mr. Harrison the Collector & Mr John Apthorp signed it at the same Time; I have since heard that it has been signed by Mr James Apthorp & Mr Hall.3 I suppose you will hear of it from Dr Caner4 in whose Hands I put it after the three first had signed. I shall be allways ready to do any Thing in my Power to vindicate the Honor of the Society & the Reputation of its Missionaries.

    I am Sr &c

    The Reverend Mr Seabury5
