Hendricks (Ohio Senator, 1848-1850) writes to Finley from the Senate Chambers. He has been in conversation with Col. Dewey, the warden at the Ohio Penitentiary. Dewey and the directors of the penitentiary speak glowingly about Finley's work as chaplain at the prison. Hendricks tells Finley that Col. Dewey would like to receive a copy of his new publication (Memorials of Prison Life) because "it would be of great service to the Penitentiary Committee." Abstract Number - 1151
