Description

Elliott reports that agents have been appointed on the different circuits for the purpose of soliciting and receiving contributions of flax, wool, articles of clothing, and money for the Mission. Elliott would like Finley to see if he could bring "the chiefs" to Newcastle on August 10th and then he will take them on to Pittsburgh. The rest of the letter concerns gossipy rumors which started since Finley has taken Elliott's place at the Mission. He has been accused of running away, that he had been tried for misdemeanors, and several other rumors. In a very polite manner, Elliott asks for an explanation. Abstract Number - 694
