Ruth Ross writes to express her joy about the salvation of her son. Prior to his leaving home to learn a trade, Ruth took him to a camp meeting, where "the Lord powerfully convicted him". She hopes that this will help him to fight the temptations and worldliness that he will surely encounter as he leaves her. Ruth would appreciate any instructional help Finley might give to him about "the wages of Righteousness and Truth." She hopes to see Mrs. Finley soon. Abstract Number - 104
