Houston is displeased with the plans for the new Meeting House in Dayton. He had presented a plan modeled after the John Street Methodist Church in New York City, with two doors in the front and two aisles leading to a central pulpit. Brother Raper opposed the plan and swayed the opinions of others towards the old plan -- one door in the front. The writer sees no hope unless Finley comes and talks to those opposing the new plan.
