Description

McDonald made a trip to Chillicothe to begin planning the proposed celebration of the city's 50th anniversary. He invites Finley to attend the celebration and "hold confabs" with the citizens. David Reed came to see him and announced that Finley had been "sent to the penitentiary," a joke that scared his wife tremendously. He then explained that Finley was serving as chaplain. The two new preachers on Frankfort Circuit are well liked. However, Rev. Meharry preaches too much hellfire and damnation, and Rev. Webster is too eccentric. Abstract Number - 255
