Description

The writer starts by telling of his almost constant defense of Finley as a non-abolitionist against the members of the church. He goes on to report conditions in Charleston. When he returned from Conference he learned the church was to be sold to pay a debt. By hard work this was put off. Then another for preachers rent was discovered, and the writer in now engaged in finding means to pay that debt. He mentions a strong southern influence that has to be contended with. Conditions in the church itself are very bad -- no regular attendance, etc. A large majority of people want a Conference of their own. The writer pledges himself to do his best, and then expresses his hatred of the evils of slavery. Abstract Number - 812
