Description

In this letter to Finley, Elliott summarizes communications he has had regarding the Plan of Separation. Elliott received Dr. Bond's article concerning potential reunion of MEC and MEC, South. He immediately wrote to Bond suggesting that reunion now "would virtually recall all the Church ever did against slavery in the Church" and "acknowledge the correctness of the Southern Movement." Bond wrote to Elliott stating that he agreed with Elliott, and would never compromise concerning the system of slavery. Elliott wrote back to Bond summarizing his current feelings regarding the Plan of Separation. -- The plan is unconstitutional and never adopted, since the Annual Conferences did not confirm the General Conference plan.
