Judge Wilson was P.M. in Mt. C., having a deputy do the work. He noticed some papers addressed to the new teachers that seemed to imply that they might abolitionists. His deputy called the attention of Judge W. to it & he told them that it would be "just as well not to antagonize people; it would do us no good."
It seems there was much feeling there in those days. When Mr. Allison prayed for the oppressed a woman from Maryland (I think it was Mrs. Dr. Rinedollar's mother) rose & left the church; she was not going "to listen to such stuff."
