Marley (Marlay) has finished his second round of Quarterly Conference meetings this year. Since this will be his last year as Presiding Elder of the Cincinnati District, he desires to see the district in a flourishing condition at the end of his appointment. Marley wants to know what Finley thinks about the proposed division of the city of Cincinnati into different districts so as to put part in one district and one part in another. He then asks Finley for an opinion on Sen. Thomas Corwin's recent speech (February 11, 1847, regarding Mexican-American War). Marley sees Corwin as one of the few U.S. senators with a moral conscience. Abstract Number - 1217
