Henry Clay & Kentucky Presbyterians

In his debate with Nathan L. Rice, Jonathan Blanchard makes a point that points again to the importance of events in Kentucky in 1816:
'And where think you, was this book printed, when, and by whom? It was published in 1816, at Georgetown, Kentucky, by the Rev. David Barrow.So the doctrines of Clarkson, which I will read, were once popular in Kentucky, before the gold her piety became dim, & and her fine gold changed.'
Henry Clay's role as trustee of Transylvania University in Kentucky at that time has sofar not been linked to the abolitionist controversy. Has nobody ever tried to clarify this interesting question?
