Young [currently serving the Fairfield Circuit] writes Finley telling of his good health and gratitude to the Lord for his good wife and five children, three being in Heaven and two on the way (as he puts it). Young reports that he has sold his property and would like Finley to look on his behalf for suitable property in a good market town with a good school and meeting house. Things are going well on the circuit -- Old Methodism is on the march again. The "poor Radicals" are trying their best, but have formed only one little society within the bounds of the Fairfield Circuit -- Somerset. The society began with 11 members and has slowly dwindled.
