Description

Crume encloses two deeds belonging to Finley. He is pleased to hear of Finley's new position at the penitentiary and knows he will do well in it. He speaks about the possibility of redemption for the prisoners -- "I have no doubt much may be done, perhaps more than the most sanguine anticipate, to restore those lost ones to society and bring them to the knowledge of the Saviour. For he who died for all will not cast away the penitent convict who seeks his mercy." Conditions are not good in Zanesville ("spiritual famine"), although folks are pleased with the new preacher, Bro. Jameson. Abstract Number - 303
