Browning tells Finley -- "The M.E. Church is beginning to rise like the towering eagle, that soars in her majestick flight above the smoak and clouds and dust that fill the atmosphere below. My soul longs to see her rise in this place and although it sometimes appears like rowing against wind and tide, I am far from giving up my hope we shall see her rise in this place also."
