Mary Bayard tells of the spiritual deadness of Pittsburgh. The Conference had appointed two excellent men, William Lambdin and a young man named Flake. Mary mentions that Bishop George "has gone to reap the reward of his labors." She tells Finley that she "hungers and thirsts after righteousness" and "craves not riches , honour or long life, but I want to be sanctified through soul, body, and spirit." It is her hope that radicalism might "sink into eternal oblivion." Abstract Number - 49
