Edward Thomson [President, Ohio Wesleyan University] has received Finley's note of resignation from the Board of Trustees at Ohio Wesleyan University. Though Thomson would be happy to have Finley continue, he understands the health reasons behind it. In response to Finley's reports of being abused by clergy colleagues, Thomson reassures him that he is still valued -- "You are still beloved & valued as ever by your brethren generally. Your services to the Church can never be forgotten or lightly esteemed. Your name will go down to posterity as that of one of Methodism's strongest & most honored champions." Abstract Number - 1236
