Savage writes to tell Finley about the trouble which the church in Germantown is undergoing. The 40 white and 50 black members of the church who are faithful and true are nearly desperate. They cannot go South for their old church is under injunction and the Ohio Conference refuses to include them in the Augusta circuit. They have a new brick church nearly built and they want Finley to come and help dedicate it. Savage asks Finley's help in the Conference decision. Abstract Number - 822
