A father's letter to his sons at college
Dear Children,
    I have nothing spettial to write but would by all means desire you to mind your Studies and carefully attend to the orders of Coledge. Attend not only Prayrs in the chapel but Secret Prayr carefully. Shun all vice especially card Playing. Read your Bibles a chapter night and morning. I cannot now send you much money but hope when Sr. Strong comes to Coventry to be able to send by him what you want….
    from your Loving Fath---
        Richd Hale
Coventry, Decr 17th 1770
