Gurley was sorry he did not see Finley while he was in Ohio but the letters of introduction were received and he appreciated them very much. The Mission has been divided. The southern group has possession of the Mission property and are not willing to let the northern group use it, so Gurley indicates that they hold their meetings in private homes. The slavery question (in Kansas) is also a big problem in the Church now -- they would like to establish a Mission but the expense would be a great problem. Abstract Number - 788
