WHEELOCK, Eleazar. Plain and Faithful Narrative of the Original Design, Rise, Progress and Present State of the Indian Charity-School at Lebanon, in Connecticut. Boston: Richard and Samuel Dravper, 1763. 1st ed. Small 4to, 55pp. Stitched as issued. Early inscription and name on title page, short closed tear to margin of title page, fore-edges a bit dog-eared, very faint cloth folding box with a leather spine label. Scarce. Howes W-334. Field 1638. Evans 9537. Sabin 103205. The first in a series on nine reports on Wheelock's Charity School, discussing the period from its founding in 1754 to 1762. The school was established for the purpose of training Indians to become Christian missionaries to their own people. "Wheelock, a graduate from Yale in 1733, was pastor of the Second (North) Society in Lebanon, and a popular preacher during the Greaet Awakening. He began the Charity School (first called More's Charity School), after Col. Joshua More, who contributed both a house and a school house in 1754. By 1765, he had some forty-six pupils, all supported by charity. In 1769 Wheelock was given a charter to establish Dartmouth College, which he did in 1770, and became its first president." -- Streeter, VII, 4062. . Bookseller Inventory # 52661
