George Walker is serving as Presiding Elder of the Dayton District. He tells Finley about difficulties he has had filling the Franklin and Eaton circuits. Walker has heard that Finley believes the efforts to elect southern leaning General Conference delegates at the Ohio Annual Conference was of Masonic origin. Walker is convinced that this is not true. In fact, there were a number of Masons who did all they could against the election of Brother Raper, given his opinion on the property question.
