Bishop Roberts has just finished presiding at the Illinois Conference and reports peace and harmony among the preachers. Bishop McKendree was there in good health and expects to go to the Kentucky Conference, as does Bishop Roberts. He regrets that he will not be able to attend the Ohio Conference because he wishes to see Finley. Roberts will not be able to pay Finley the money he owes him, but will send $75.00 with Brother M. Ruter to pass on to him. He tells Finley about the establishment of a school and mission among the Potawatomi Indians under the missionary leadership of Bro. Walker [Jesse]. Roberts sends his warm regards. Abstract Number - 609
