Barrett mentions several books that Finley requested and needed in preparing a manuscript on history. He expresses regret over the poor state of Finley's health. He goes on to give a report on conditions in his circuit. Religious progress is moving slowly ahead, in spite of trouble with the Presbyterians. He invites Finley to visit as soon as possible. He mentions Samuel Clarke, who did not receive an anticipated appointment and is consequently feeling low and becoming despondent. Barrett suggests that Finley write to Clarke. Abstract Number - 174
