Description

Brooke, Rev. Finley's son-in-law, begins on a religious note, expressing gratitude for the mercies of God. He states that he has more liberty in preaching and more power with God in many places on the circuit, and more good times and flattering prospects in Dayton. However, there has been some trouble. Some members on his circuit have recently been expelled "for getting drunk at the election." Brooke reports that he gave Judge McLean "a talk" when he provided whiskey to folks, resulting in much drunkenness. He asks Finley for a decision regarding family property, whether "to sell or rent or build and live on it." He also expresses the need for better means of collecting funds for the mission.Abstract Number - 685
