A letter from S.M. Booth informing Lewis Tappan that he has read his letter to John T. Norton and understands that he intends "to take Kale and Kinna to New York, without bringing them [to Farmington]." Booth states that A.F. Williams and others think such would be most unfortunate not to have Kinna at Farmington "as he is the chief stimulator of the others to study." He further states that the Africans are anxious to have Kinna and Kale "but especially Kinna, as he is the principal interpreter" and that Cinque is anxious "to have the girls released from Pendleton."
