Brunson is serving the Detroit Circuit, which includes 26 preaching points. It is his most difficult circuit to date. He confides to Finley that his colleague Brother Samuel Baker is a pious and holy man, but a terrible preacher. Folks refuse to come for worship when Baker is preaching. Brunson would like to divide the circuit in half due to family concerns, but this will only be possible if Baker is replaced ("exchanged"). Abstract Number - 618
