Holmes writes in a defense of Rev. William Swayze, an old Methodist minister, formerly of Beavertown, who has transferred to the Ohio Conference. Swayze is aging and has been tossed aside as "useless lumber" by many of his younger peers. Holmes fears that Swayze's feelings might be hurt by peers in Ohio. He praises the fine work Swayze has done in the past, and hopes that Finley will look out for him. Abstract Number - 130
