Rufus Bunnell papers by Rufus Bunnell( Archival Material )
in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Both Rufus Bunnell and his wife, Diantha, strongly encouraged their sons to pursue the educational experiences made available to them: letter, 8 Jan. 1820, to William at school in Cheshire, Conn., chides him for poor handwriting and advises him to work diligently at improving it, for it is "indispensably necessary to secure a clerkship in any Gentleman's Counting room." Of the two sons, William appears to have been the less inclined to study; rather, he wanted financial success but did not want to work for it. William frequently asked his parents for money in addition to the expenses they already paid for him. On 6 Jan. 1821 Rufus Bunnell wrote again to William and tried to address the problem, "Both myself and your mother make every exertion and use any measure of industry to enable us to pay the expenses of your schooling and clothing so that you need not go into the world ignorant and unfit for business and also unfit for the company of gentlemen and of people of respectability." He urged William to apply himself, at least until he was seventeen and had finished his formative schooling, "You will be too great an ignoramus if you study no longer than next spring, for I notice in your letters that you spell bad and write bad grammar and write 'Gramma' for Grand-Mother."
