Ellis indicates that his health is a little better this summer than the preceding season. He reports to Finley (Presiding Elder of Zanesville District), that he is having difficulty with his colleague assigned to the Granville Circuit. R. Doughty is not visiting "delynquent'' members. Some of the members believe that Doughty ought not to be traveling a circuit at all, and that he would be better off as a local preacher. Ellis tells Finley that he bears no ill will against Doughty.
