Field says he was somewhat slow in making collections to meet the expense of the delegates to the General Conference so he did not have the opportunity to give it to Finley before he left for Pittsburgh. He encloses $12 and wishes Finley to acknowledge it immediately and let him know how he succeeds. Field indicates that he has visited Finley's interesting charge (State Prison) according to arrangement. He preached in the Chapel at 11 o'clock and after dining with Dewey (the warden), they visited the Female Department. In both cases they had a good reception. Mr. Heath made a fine impression.
