Thomas, the writer, has a son, Samuel, who has "commenced reading medicine" and "has attended a course of lectures at Louisville." Samuel wishes to commence the practice of medicine, and Thomas Davis thinks there might be "several advantages derived from being associated with an old and respectable practitioner", and hopes that Finley can "make the necessary enquiry" for his son. Thomas speaks of the admirable qualities of Samuel, the son, and also speaks of the state of his own health. "In regard to the state of religion", in the writer's neighborhood, he thinks the membership is holding its own. They have good class meetings, but there no accessions to the church.
