Presiding Elder [Dayton District] George W. Walker asks Finley to call and pay the tax on his land in Hancock County for him. He will reimburse Finley later. Walker updates a letter sent to Finley regarding arbitration with the Germantown trustees. Evidently they have paid off the note to the Preachers' Relief Society. Walker wonders if Finley has heard about the "anti-Methodistical' manner of seating at the new meeting house in Dayton [Wesley Chapel] -- "Free seats, but the men and women mixed up together." Brother Inskip is pushing ahead with this reform "at all hazards." Walker reckons he will have some trouble dealing with this situation. Abstract Number - 429
