Chidlaw begins by praising Finley for the great work he is doing as chaplain of the prison. He then asks if Finley would accept a library of 100 books published by the American Sunday School Union. If so, he should write soon. Chidlaw asks for a few words about the prison Sunday School -- the number of pupils and teachers, the utility of religious and moral reading among the convicts.
