David Jordan, steward at the Greene-Street Methodist Episcopal Church, is very unhappy about the treatment he has received at the hands of James B. Finley, Presiding Elder of the Dayton District. Finley has accused Jordan of orchestrating a reduction in his salary over the issue of abolitionism. Jordan reminds Finley that the preacher in charge at the time, Solomon Howard, has stated unequivocally that Jordan was not responsible. Jordan hopes this difficulty can be remedied soon.
