Fielding informs Finley that the semi-annual meeting of the Board of Trustees of Augusta College is scheduled for Feb. 5, 1834. He indicates that Brother (Joseph S.) Tomlinson had resigned the presidency and Dr. (Nathan) Bangs, whom the Board appointed to take his place, has declined acceptance. They are therefore without a head. Due to Tomlinson's poor health, the faculty had been weak before his resignation. The added duties made life very difficult for them. Fielding says that they need Finley's advice and would like him to come a week before the Board meets. Fielding invites Finley to be a guest at his house. (Joseph S. Tomlinson did not resign from his office as President of Augusta College in 1834. He was President until 1839 when the college failed). Abstract Number - 633
