Mr. Blair has been expelled from the Society -- the charge against him was "imprudent conduct in being at the tavern and drinking too much cider." He pleaded guilty to the charge "and had previously made and exhibited all the marks of humiliation I was capable of without acting the hypocrite, but all would not suffice, although 3/4 of the Society expressed entire satisfaction to my face and I was assured by the class leader that they were all perfectly satisfied with me." However, Mr. Brook selected a committee which decided against him. He tells Finley "I am out but God still reigns." Abstract Number - 20
