Here again we face the issue of confused time sequences. Although the Everhard school can be documented for 1844, there is evidence that the experiences that encouraged his visits to Aunt Kitty's did not fully materialize until 1845. The year 1845 was difficult in the Janes household. 53 Such "preoccupations" no doubt encouraged BOYHOOD IN THE OHIO HILLS · 25 his visits to Aunt Kitty's. On the other hand, his mother's silent protests were well known and had resulted in earlier adjustments. What was disturbing about 1845 was the fact that the grave and courtly father, who had served to balance the emotional mother, began to give way under new and unexpected pressures.

By the 1850s signs of deviancy had largely disappeared. Successful peer relationships were underscored by the stirrings of a childhood romance with a girl named Josephine Ferrel. But here again we have only the briefest of glimpses. 72 Having finished with A. C. Allen's Union School in 1853, Janes was ready for the next step in his preparatory education. The Albany Manual Labor Academy to which he was sent by his father was typical of the small, transient schools that mushroomed in Ohio and other Western states in the mid-nineteenth century.

The problem with Albany, therefore, may have had less to do with the school and its headmaster, than with Leroy's inner tensions. Too much ism, as Janes subsequently used the term, usually meant too many rules and restrictions on his freedom of conduct. In later years this judgment was often reserved for sectarian orders of the Church, but at Albany it seems to have been extended to the school as a whole. Given the fact that Albany, like other sectarian schools of its kind, stressed a high morality that was to be combined with subservience to authority, it may be fair to argue that Albany helped to stimulate the growing tension between Leroy's inner quest for freedom and the concomitant need to deal with authority in the outside world.
