Letter to Walter Lowrie from Edmund McKinney, April 22, 1845.
Edmund McKinney, missionary in charge of Spencer Academy, describes an ongoing conflict over his hiring of a “free man of color,” Oliver Ingles. McKinney complained that Ingles “had made no preparations to go, and was using as he had been for sometime, very threatening language towards me.” The situation dragged on for several months, until Ingles finally relented and left Spencer Academy, but only after “he and his wife received full compensation.”
