Moses B. Walker met with the trustees of the Germantown M.E.C. in late January, to present Finley's claim against the church and represent him during the arbitration. [The issue is most likely Finley's previous promise to raise money for the new Germantown church building, from which he asked to be released in 1846.] One of the trustees argues that Finley collected $64 for and in the name of the church, then applied it to his personal subscription of $75 for the new building. Walker was able to bargain successfully with the trustees on Finley's behalf [possibly payment to Preachers Aid Society. See letter from George W. Walker to James B. Finley, February 14,1849].
