Davis is grateful that Finley has been satisfied with this administration. He feels that the Presiding Elders at the Conference have not thought he was worthy of office in the Conference which has hurt him very much. He lists several men who have been favored more than himself. Among them are George C. Crum and John Mily. The letter mentions that John W. Weekley had traveled on the circuit for ten years. Davis claims he should have better positions in the Conference and he thanks Finley for his help at the Marietta Conference. Abstract Number - 278
