Discovery Trail 9 (Eastern Gateway Building Display Cabinets, University Archives)
This letter from 22 November 1844 is one of many sent to the British and Foreign School Society (BFSS) by Jabez Tunley from Jericho, Jamaica. It accompanies an exercise book full of examples of handwriting produced by Tunley’s pupils at Jericho British School, St Thomas in the Vale, Jamaica. Tunley attended Borough Road College in 1839 and set up his school in Jericho in 1843.
The letter is part of the BFSS Foreign Correspondence in the University Archives. Young men and women trained at Borough Road College went all over the world to teach, many combining teaching with missionary work or involvement in the anti-slavery movement.
