Cummings writes to Finley concerning Dr. Prescott (John S. Prescott?), a lawyer in Xenia who is seeking a new position. Dr. Prescott would like Finley's help in finding a position. He would prefer not to continue the practice of law, but he will if he must to support his family. He appears to desire admission on trial by an M.E. Conference. Cummings mentions a slander case discussed at the 1840 Ohio Annual Conference. He asks Finley to "suspend any judgment in that case until you come to Xenia." Abstract Number - 197
