Elliott's letter concerns the relationship of the Methodist Church South to the growing and serious slavery question. Elliott also mentions his letter from Dr. Nathan Bangs in regard to the Book Concern. Elliott tells that in his Brother's District everything is firm but that further South the congregations of the various churches refuse to receive the messages of their ministers. Elliott hopes that this problem can be worked out at the General Conference. Abstract Number - 815
