This letter is written by Daniel Hitt on behalf of Bishop McKendree. Hitt reports that Indian missions to the south are doing well. Finley has evidently asked about the propriety of the Wyandots attending the 1822 Ohio M.E. Conference. Hitt responds -- "As respects the Indians visiting the Conference at its next session, the Bishop is unwilling to give advice therein; but thinks, as you know the place and country round about the seat of Conference, you must judge of the propriety or impropriety of their attending, at the same time not doubting, but their attendance might be productive of salutary effects in various points of view." Thus, the decision is left to Finley. Hitt tells Finley that he will be traveling with Bishop McKendree this year, and will therefore be present at the Ohio Conference.
