Bonner a German Reformed minister, prosecuted his studies under the auspices of Principal Stoy of Holland. He was aided by the Holland fund; but the sum was not sufficient to allow him to finish his work. He was recommended to .the English dispensers of their bounty, so that he might be able to attain "his desired goal." These facts we learn from a letter written to Holland in the year 1757.
