Corresponding Secretary, Thomas Mason, asks Finley to select another male Indian child for a four year education, to be funded by the Finleyan Missionary Society. The boy is to be named John Summerfield. Mason recommends that the mission school adopt the Lancasterian plan of teaching. He also argues that there should be a missions committee in every conference, in order to facilitate funding of mission projects. Abstract Number - 611
