This letter, from the papers of Lucy B. Armstrong, addresses the rising tensions over the issue of slavery during the late 1840s. As the author of the letter explains, many feared that an effort was underway "by slaveholding missionaries and government agents to induce the Indian Department to expell" missionaries opposed to slavery in order to "deprive us of our religious rights."
