Holmes writes in a defense of Rev. Wm. Swayze, an old Methodist minister, formerly of Beavertown, who has transferred to Finley's 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 for the Church in the past, and hopes that Finley will be looking out for him. Abstract Number - 130
