16 year old Watson Tripp writes to Finley about a subject he has kept secret for a long time. He received a pardon for his transgressions three years ago. Ever since, he has felt a strong call to do something for his Saviour, sensing "the impression of a future duty." He can no longer run away from these feelings so he puts his life into the hands of God. He asks for Finley's spiritual advice. Abstract Number - 324
