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 can bring "the chiefs" to Newcastle and then he will take them on to Pittsburgh. The rest of the letter concerns gossipy rumors which started after Finley took Elliott's place at the Mission. Elliott has been accused of running away and committing misdemeanors, neither of which are true. Elliott asks Finley for an explanation. Abstract Number - 694
