Dr. Sellers has been expelled from the Lebanon Methodist Episcopal Church. Sellers has decided to appeal his expulsion at the next annual conference in September of 1852. On a different topic, Sellers shares the story of the General Conference ticket fiasco. Sellers believes that the "tickets" presented at the last Ohio annual conference (lobbying for delegate candidates to General Conference of 1852) were printed in Lebanon at the local newspaper office by W.R. Davis, and circulated prior to the election of delegates at the 1851 annual conference. Davis' motivation was evidently his desperate desire to attend the General Conference. Sellers is writing a history of the enterprise which he will send to Finley when completed. Abstract Number - 1222
