Volume 60: William Campbell letters, 1846-1894: No. 231
You are here
the Overseers and I may say the establishment against me, and when at the risk of your affairs suffering from the ill feeling of my assistants, you both supported me. I recollect
well well offering to resign my appointment on the ground of my inexperience and the disadvantage of working with the Overseers with whom I was then in such bad odour, but when you or He or both said that if it came to the worst that you would sooner part with your experienced Overseers than with me. I felt your kindness, and I believe to the best of my ability I studied your interest throughout the seven years I remained in your employment. I have ever since looked back with much pleasure to the amicable relations between us, and to the kind interest you all took in me and in my family.
