J.S. Inskip writes to Finley concerning his recent trial at the 1851 Ohio Conference. For the second year, Inskip has been censured for allowing men and women to sit together in pews ("promiscuous seating" ) during worship. Inskip has a copy of the proceedings and will be appealing to the 1852 General Conference. He would like Finley's assistance. [Note: Finley is supportive of promiscuous seating, to the displeasure of many colleagues. This is a separate issue from "free pews."] Abstract Number - 471
