McIlvaine, Charles Pettit, "Letter to unknown clergyman" (1860). Charles Pettit McIlvaine Letters. 76.
Cinc. Nov. 3, 1860
Rev. and Dear Sir–
I write you from N.Y. about Mr. Morrow’s intention to leave the N.Y. [Seminary] and go to ours. I was there expecting that he would be taken in [hand] by [?] Heather of St. John’s and his expenses provided for. But since I came home I have ascertained that after Mr. Morrow accepted the offer to go to N.Y. [??] committed himself to some other subject and cannot now visit [Mr. M]. It will be therefore be unnecessary that he be taken up by our Education Committee. He has made a considerable sacrifice [?] to go to Gambier. I will thank you as soon as he gets there – to have his case brought before the Committee. I feel confident in [??]. He can teach and train in sacred [?] and could not a class be organized for him to teach? I wish there might be some regular instruction and practicing of Theol. students [at least] in that branch. Each [giving] a small sum might help him and [?] much benefit.
Charl. P. McIlvaine
