James tells first of an epidemic of fever which affected his whole family and caused the deaths of many others. He then relates plans to build a Methodist church in his vicinity. He would like to donate the shingles but cannot do it alone, so asks Finley to help him by soliciting $15 or $20 in his territory. The church is very necessary, he says, due to the ignorance and vice predominant in the town. Abstract Number - 406
