This letter was written to Orange Johnson of Worthington, Ohio from William M. Johnson, his son, in Milan, Ohio. In the letter, Johnson updates his father on an incident that happened at school and the tension it has caused between him and a teacher. Johnson tells his father that the Trustees have found in his favor on the matter, but he continues to suffer harassment from the teacher. He feels that he will be unable to complete the term because he cannot show the teacher the respect afforded someone in that position. He mentions other issues that are causing him to doubt whether or not he should stay and asks for his father's advice on the matter.
