Rev. Mutchner writes to Finley, Presiding Elder of the Zanesville District, concerning some unrest among the Mason (Warren County) church members. He is waiting for the stage and talking with two "principal men" of the Mason congregation, which has 60 members. Half of the members have declared that they will leave the church if Presiding Elder Zechariah Connell is returned as P.E. of the Lebanon District. Furthermore, there is a church below Lebanon on the Monroe Circuit which has resolved not to pay the quarterage for Connell if he is returned to the position. Mutchner feels that Finley needs to know what is going on and wants him to use his influence to prevent Connell from being returned. Abstract Number - 391
