Rev. Samuel Maddux (1818-1851) has been studying the doctrine of endless punishment for many years. He has proposed written correspondence with Universalist preacher M.L. Edwards on the subject. Before this can happen, Edwards needs a scholarly recommendation for him. Maddux asks Finley to provide this recommendation. [Note: Samuel Maddux was a member of the Ohio Conference appointed to Point Pleasant in the Kanawha District at the time this letter was written. In 1851, the Methodist Book Concern published his book -- The Doctrine of Future Punishment Philological and Theologically Established]. Abstract Number - 272
