Scope and Contents

One holograph note written by Isaac Bird to his brother, William Bird, dated July 13, 1812.

Its officers are paid to be men of very distinguished talents & its scholars exemplary, most of them [...] of religion & on the whole a very flourishing institution. New Haven or Yale is a College of greater note more favorable for gaining a [complete?] education nearer home & in our own nation state."
