A letter of appreciation for a letter of advice and counsel from Finley. Hamer speaks regretfully of the withdrawal of his family from the Church because of troubles there. But he says they are as much Methodists as ever and will always be. He is not satisfied with his spiritual life, but still has "hope that reaches beyond the grave" and still has hope to "reach the haven of rest beyond this vale of tears" and to meet there "you, my elder worthy brother."
