TitleLetter to Bourne from Edward Begrie
DescriptionLetter to Bourne from Edward Begrie, Nassau. Has returned to the Bahamas. New Wesleyan Collegiate School has opened and taken most of his "respectable lads". Attendance would be higher if he had a white assistant, prejudice still very strong against black teachers. His school has several temporary teachers while he was away, including Mr Keeling, a black teacher from Jamaica. The Episcopalians want a share of the grant money, which will mean some Board schools will have to close. Asks if Bourne knows of an Inspector's position vacant.
