AbstractCowley joins with Spalding in faction row. / by Dr. Clifford M. Drury. <br>Rev. H. H. Spalding was a very outspoken man. There is plenty of evidence to show that he was absolutely fearless in denouncing sin. In fact, he rather delighted in it. The result was the frequently made enemies. Spalding and Monteith found several points on which they did not agree. Monteith was the Indian agent at Lapwai while Spalding was superintendent of instruction. Associated with Monteith was Perrin Whitman, nephew of Dr. Marcus Whitman, who came out with his famous uncle in 1843. Perrin Whitman escaped death at the time his uncle and aunt and ten others were massacred at the Waiilatpu mission in November, 1847, because at the time he happened to be at the Dalles.
