Here us a letter from Wm. B. Stone, West Brookfield, claiming that ” A slaveholder from the District of Columbia is received to the full enjoyment of all of the privileges of the Seminary. He is there with his wife and doubtless is supported by the unrequited toil of his fellow men. Let a man steal a sheep and he would be forever excluded from that sacred Institution…..O how long will our theological professors and ministers wink at this heaven-provoking, soul-destroying, man-imbruting sin! What shall we call such an institution? Is it for or against slavery? Facts speak louder than words.
