Once Cyrus was taken by his father and his brothers Seth and Benjamin to a lecture given by famed Negro abolitionist Frederick Douglas.  Cyrus was so impressed that he invited Frederick Douglas to dinner without a thought for what anyone else would think.  He then made sure to pass on some of the wisdom that was gained from that meeting.  His great grandson, Boyd Wendell Hinshaw, said that the most memorable lesson from Cyrus' meeting was that Frederick Douglas said, "As long as a man owes a debt to another man, he is a slave, because a piece of the productivity of his labor must go to pay that other man until the debt is satisfied."17
