Letters from Webster

Letter to Samuel Ayers Bradley (January 9, 1800)
Webster writes to Bradley, and urges him to temporarily put aside his studies of the law and to turn his thoughts to the time when he, too, was a student at Dartmouth. Webster comments on the inclination of those still in College to look up to one such as Bradley who had moved on to higher levels of education. Webster then proceeds upon a commentary of the color of the structures in Hanvoer, and describes his reasons for disliking a uniform "whiteness."
