Col. Dewey writes that he is glad Finley's health has improved. Dewey was very concerned when Finley left for General Conference in Pittsburgh, fearing that he would not be able to handle the journey and his duties at the Conference. He also tells Finley that the chaplain "substitutes" are doing a fine job at the prison. Dewey expresses his best wishes and hopes to see Finley return "in good health and spirits."
