Doty writes Finley that some wrong has been done in his parish, but it is impossible to know what, for he does not once mention it. (Finley at this time was the Presiding Elder of the Sandusky District and Superintendent of the Wyandot Mission. It seems that the man who was appointed to serve the parish is not what he ought to be, but has assumed the authority of a Conference, and has over-ruled their Discipline). Doty asks Finley for aid and begs him to attend the next Quarterly Meeting. Evidently Doty is referring to a specific person for he says this: "The Society generally believes he has ruled with extreme partiality and we doubt his veracity in many instances."
