Certificate of Teaching Commission George H. King October 26, 1864
American Missionary Association - H5430
This is George H. Kings Certificate of Commission for teaching from the American Missionary Association dated October 26, 1864. The certificate was to be used in the Department of the South - South Carolina. The certificate is signed by Geo. Whipple and M. E. Strieby. This document is a rare find. I have never found a commissioning letter in roll after roll of correspondence. That is because, of course, this document was given to the recipient and not expected to be returned to the files of the AMA. So a little mystery here as to how this got back into the files of the AMA.
