Letter, Wm R. Clark to Dear Bro. [Isaac] Goodnow
Authors: Clark, William
Date:  February 29, 1860
William Clark wrote from New England to Isaac Goodnow in Manhattan, Kansas Territory. Clark responded to a letter sent to him earlier by Goodnow, in which Goodnow asked Clark if he would act as a financial officer of Bluemont College. Clark admitted he did have reasons that might motivate him to accept, but added that he had "so little adaptation as to that [work] of begging money." He also feared, considering the present economic conditions in New England and within the Methodist Church, that he would not be successful in garnering any support for a College in Kansas Territory, as local interests currently prevailed. Clark declined the appointment.
