Excerpt from The Monthly Repository of Theology and General Literature, Vol. 8: January to December Inclusive, 1813
Historical Account 9 the War rington Academy. Newcastle, Dec. 20, 1812. Sm, I now at length enter on the ful. Filment of my promise (m. Repos. Vol. V. P. To furnish you with some account of the Warring. Ton Academy, from its first estab lishment in 1757, to its dissolu. Tion in 1783. If i had been aware of the difficulties which I should have had to encounter in clearing up various circumstances connect ed with its early history, I might not, perhaps, have been so forward in offering my services, to pay the best tribute in my power to the me mory of my alma mater. But when it is considered that more than half a centuryhas elapsed, since many important particulars connected with its history occurred, that all the persons engaged in its direction have, for several years, been dead, and that very few remain of those who were students during its more early periods, your readers, I trust, will ex'cuse any imperfec tions which may appear in thefol. Lowing historical sketch.
