McMaster, John B. (1852-1932). Historian, author. ALS, 3 pp., University of Pennsylvania, April 4, 1889. To Dwight King of Albany, sending him a copy of the book L'Abbeville Francaise and discussing a comment sent to King. In part:  "The note of M. Naveride (sic) seems to be a record of current opinion. The introduction of the French language at that time would have been far more like to bring in atheism than popery. In all the changes made, in 1794-1798, by the Connecticut ministry against the French, popery had a very small place, while Godliness & immorality had a very large one. The statement of M. Naveride is, I think, what he believed to be the reason for the refusal of the part of the ministers forming the board of YaleTrustees."  He offers to put a note in the Pennsylvania Magazine of History. With the original envelope. Lightly soiled, but very good.
