Mitchell is writing this because he thinks Finley is interested in the affairs of the Church. The problem concerns Brother Moody's return. The people have circulated a document, proposing to the Conference that a change was very desirable and indeed necessary. After all the good work Moody has done in the Church, the Conference does not quite know what to do. They do not think this document should be laid before the Conference as coming from the Methodist Episcopal Church. It is not their intention to send any petition to be presented until after the document shall have been brought before the Conference. Then, in justice to themselves and in justice to their late pastor, they will hold their peace no longer. Abstract Number - 290
