Young [Presiding Elder of the Ohio District] sends a letter containing words of comfort to Finley [serving Steubenville Circuit], who seems to be discouraged. He advises Finley not to fret. The evil Finley has described is not new but perhaps "a meaner & more low lived form." He advises Finley that it is good to be instrumental in "turning sinners from outward viciousness" but we ought to pray for God's help to renew the inner hearts of these sinners.
