Marley (Marlay) is very grateful for Finley's friendship. He remembers when Finley gave him his first license to preach. Marley still believes that there will be no geographical division of the denomination, but acknowledges that they will know more after the Louisville Convention. He tells Finley that Samuel A. Latta (southern sympathies) holds Finley in high regard, even though there is strong disagreement between them. Marley agrees with Finley that proslaveryism and abolitionism are "German cousins."
