Description

Excerpt from Sesquicentennial Celebration of Princeton College, Princeton, N. J: October 20th, 21st and 22d, 1896 America, which took place in 1741. As the questions of an unconverted ministry and disagreement with reference to candi dates were a chief cause of the schism, it was natural that each body should make vigorous efforts for the education and intro duction of unexceptionable men into the sacred office. Two motives actuated them in this course, the desire to extend the knowledge of the gospel, and the less praiseworthy one of party, which induced each to vie with the other in efforts to establish and strengthen itself. It is highly probable that the treatment David Brainerd received at the hands of the officers of Yale College stimulated his friends, among whom were the Rev. Jonathan Dickinson and the Rev. Aaron Burr, who were strongly attached to him, to erect a college of their own; indeed, it is related that Mr. Burr said If it had not been for the treatment Mr. Brainerd received at Yale, New Jersey College would never have been erected.
