Marley writes because he feels Finley should be informed of present circumstances. The Southern delegates to the famous Convention now in session in Louisville, Kentucky passed through Cincinnati. Dr. William Capers exhibited a letter supposedly written by Finley in 1839. Marley quotes parts of the letter in which it says Finley is all in favor of Southern Methodism. Marley thinks it probably a fraud and wants to inform Finley of it so that he can deny it. Abstract Number - 807
