Description

Davis writes to his "father in the Gospel" (Finley) and is grateful that Finley has been satisfied with his recent work. He feels that many presiding elders of the Ohio Conference have not thought he was worthy of their confidence, and have not given him good appointments. He speaks of his "odious lot" and talks of others getting the "fat places." He lists several men who have been favored more than himself. Among them is George C. Crume who, out of 14 appointments, has received nine stations. Davis claims that he should have better positions in the Conference. Abstract Number - 278
