Deputy Governor for a college to be errected some where in New Jersey
Twelve trustees appointed-I was the first man that proposed to set [subscriptions]
on foot for said Town-also I was the first man that drew a subscription [for]
that purpose, also the first that rode to obtain subscriptions, [also wrote]
twenty papers for that purpose And helped to spread them and did
obtain about five hundred pounds subscribed under said first Charter
[Also] After a second Charter was granted by Gov. Jonathan Belcher
A College in New Jersey & about twenty five trustees appointed. The old subscription
was all dropped. And I wrote about fifteen subscriptions more,

Spread said subscriptions in which about seventeen hundred Pounds was obtained.
I also gave four acres and a half of land to set the college on, and twenty
Pounds, besides time and expenses for several years together, but whereas, I did
sign but three acres in the subscription-so I took a receipt of some of
the Trustees, only for the three acres of land to answer the subscription-
And altho the consideration mentioned in the deed I gave the Trustees for said
College land-is one hundred & fifty Pounds- I never did receive one peny of it that
was only to confirm title-(signed) Nathaniel Fitz Randolph- - -
