Miller is serving at the German mission in New York City. He thanks Finley for his recent financial contribution for the German work in New York. He tells Finley about Brother Schwartz who is an exceptionally well-educated young man and an excellent preacher. [Note: William Schwartz was admitted on trial to the New York Conference in 1848, serving churches in the U.S. and later serving as a missionary to Germany]. Miller is offered the position of traveling agent for the German Publishing Fund by Brother Wilhelm Nast. He tells Nast that he will go wherever he is appointed. However, the Germans in New York express their determination to keep him there. He is evidently giving medical advice and performing surgical operations among the poor. Abstract Number - 852
