    Excerpt from A Candid, Analytical Review of the "Sketches of the History of Dartmouth College and Moors' Charity School, With a Particular Account of Some Late Remarkable Proceedings of the Board of Trustees, From the Year 1779 to the Year 1815"

    As our ordinary talents render us little capable, so are we little disposed, to criticise these historical sketches. They are a plain, unvarnished tale. They are a simple and plain statement of facts, art less and unadorned. Their sincerity and honesty gain the confidence of the Reader. The style is manly and correct; the author is full hf his subject; but' while his sensibilities are alive, he'preserves his temj per while most ardent, he is still decorous while most impassioned, he avoids personal invective, and fairly rests the merits of his cause on known facts. How ever, as he goes over the same period of time, repeat edly, and several times refers to the same facts, though for necessary and distinct purposes, he is unavoidably involved in some slight repetitions. In a great meas ure, he makes the board of Trustees their own histo rians by a connected chain of their own votes. Little is left for opinion, or personal veracity to decide; re corded votes are the principal proofs, and the deduc tions force themselves on the mind. Though a great part of the work is a detail of schemes and lans, which offend and disgust, yet frequently the schdlar is seen in the narrator, his extensive research, his pro found re¿ections, and the force of his eloquence, please, deli ht and instruct the reader.
