Seite 51 - He has seduced several of the hopefullest young clergymen, and others here, many of them well provided for, and all of them in the fairest way of preferment ; but, in England, his conquests are greater, and, I doubt, will spread very far this winter.
Seite 51 - Indian scholars and missionaries, where he most exorbitantly proposeth a whole hundred pounds a year for himself, forty pounds for a fellow, and ten for a student.

But as you are pleased to desire my advice upon this undertaking, I send the following hints to be enlarged and improved by your own judgment.
