Davis has written a letter to a fellow minister, Finley. It seems that Davis is trying to receive votes to be one of the delegates to the Quarterly Conference. In Davis' opinion Finley has been speaking against him and saying that Davis had printed certain General Conference tickets which were improper. Davis explains how he received the tickets post-marked in Hillsborough. He did not like two of the names on the tickets, so he asked a printer, Mr. Denny, to reprint them leave those two names out and insert two others , a R.O. Spencer and W.I. Shorrow. He then went to a Dr. Elliott's office and showed him the tickets, and they read for the first time the letter which was with them. Dr. Elliott believed that an enemy had done this and said that the tickets which were printed should be destroyed, which was done. The others he gave out to anybody who asked for them. Davis asks Finley to explain his actions in a letter. Abstract Number - 476
