Messick says that Finley is acquainted with the history of the Society of "Union Chapel." They have no regular meetings. They are not permitted to participate in any of the instituted means of grace common to the Church -- other than public ministrations of the Word, which they can obtain from a local brother or Conference minister. Yet they have a neat and comfortable church. They have met the claim of Ohio Wesleyan University by the purchase of fifteen scholarships, and of the American Bible Society by the contribution of $100. There is still before them the Missionary Society and the Preachers Fund. They would like to secure Finley's services some Sunday at which he would present the latter claim to the people.
