Young [superannuated] reports to Finley about his trip back to Zanesville from Cumberland. [On their return from the General Conference of 1832, Ohio delegates, including Young, were injured in a stagecoach accident near Cumberland, MD.] Young recuperated in Cumberland until July 7th, when he made his way home by stagecoach. The trip was very painful because his dislocated shoulder came out of place again and his broken ribs were aching. When he finally arrived in Zanesville he burst into tears as if in his "second childhood." He is still unable to sleep or eat well. Brother Trimble appears to be working very hard among the Zanesville members with some success. Young intends to attend the Ohio Annual Conference if his health allows. Abstract Number - 896
