Letter, 1814 Oct 31, Dartmouth College, [Hanover, N.H.] to Lt. Governor William Chamberlin [sic], Peacham, [Vt.].

Letter from the president of Dartmouth College to the lieutenant governor of Vermont, written on the eve of the Hartford Convention. Wheelock opposes involvement in the war, expressing disdain for the president and congress, and hopes that Vt. will join with other northern states in opposition. He also accepts Chamberlain's son, William, into the class of 1818 and reluctantly approves both Chamberlain's sons' absence during the term.
