Marley (Marlay) writes to Finley bewailing the state of the country and the church. With regard to the church, he is very upset to see "principle men" attempting to ruin each other's reputations. He has less trust in men generally than ever before. The spirit of religion is low in his district. He does not think there will be a separation (North and South) of the denomination before the next General Conference, if ever. Abstract Number - 804
