Thomas Paul Among those who graduated at the late commencement at Dartmouth College was our young colored friend, Thomas Paul, son of the late Rev. Thomas Paul, of this city. The part assigned to him was ‘Napoleon’s estimate of himself on the island of St. Helena’. According to the concurrent testimony of several letter-writers, Mr. Paul acquitted himself in a very creditable manner, and extorted unqualified approbation from all who heard him. ….He is now in Boston, anxious to employ his talents and educational attainments in the best possible manner……Any recommendations of Mr. Paul, we presume will be very cheerfully furnished by President Lord of the faculty at Dartmouth, should they be desired by any individuals. For further particulars, application can be made to us at 25 Cornhill….
