Johnston desires to place his namesake (Indian boy renamed John Johnston) at Philander Chase's preparatory school/seminary in Worthington [precursor of Kenyon College]. Johnston will pay for the boy's board, tuition, clothing, etc. He asks Finley to explain this to the Wyandot chiefs and to arrange for the boy to be transported to Worthington. It would appear that Johnston's biological son will be attending the school as well. Abstract Number - 735
