Jacky tells of a visit to Finley's uncle, John Finley, who is well, considering his age. He lives with his son-in-law and granddaughter, Hannah McCorkle. Conditions are not much better in Jacky's circuit. The "colored population" seem "much more engaged than the whites." He writes about the fire in Charleston and the great damage done to the churches. It is hoped, through subscription and collection, that these churches can be rebuilt better than before. He expresses pleasure over the near completion of Finley's book on the history of the Indians. Jacky's two children (James and Richard) are both in good health. Abstract Number - 774
