While musing over old friends and new, Reed thought of his uncle and a deep feeling of pride and happiness came over him. Great men have lived and great men will follow, but J.B. Finley is one of the great men of the M.E. Church. Reed is proud to be related to him. Bishop Soule (M.E. Church South) was recently honored but Reed feels the honor was misplaced. Reed pledges his heart and soul to his work and asks to be of any assistance he can to his uncle. Abstract Number - 658
