Inskip is indignant over the treatment of Finley in his old age. Members of the Ohio Conference opposed to promiscuous seating have been unmerciful in their criticism of Finley for championing the idea of family seating. Inskip is convinced that the Ohio Conference accusers will meet with failure at General Conference. [He was right]. Finley Chapel at Dayton has changed its name to Raper Chapel in order to honor the memory of Rev. Raper. Inskip's accusers are spreading the rumor that the church no longer wishes to bear Finley's name due to his support of promiscuous seating. Inskip reassures Finley that this was not the reason for the name change. He is hopeful that Finley will be able to attend General Conference in Boston. Abstract Number - 1224
