Field speaks of the conversion of over 40 persons, mostly children in his district. He wishes to be informed of the result of Finley's conference with Col. Dewey respecting the probability of his brother-in-law being employed as a guard at the State Prison, and on what two Sabbaths Finley wishes Mr. Boring and himself to serve Finley in order that they might make arrangements to the best advantage. He also indicates that Mr. Swormstedt will vacate his place in the Book Agency, and suggests that that their delegation nominate and do whatever is right and proper to secure the election of Rev. Uriah Heath to that position. Rev. Heath, he said, is in every way qualified. Field had understood that Mr. Trimble was a candidate, but said there were other prominent places he might fit better.
