Mr. Blair writes a letter of thanks to Rev. Finley for being a friend and carrying on a great but difficult piece of work in this world. This letter is a beautiful expression of love and confidence in God. The writer pictures Finley in a "smoky wigwam on the shores of Lake Huron--holding a prayer meeting pursuing his task of spreading the Gospel to the natives of the forest." Blair asserts that God is present in both the country (among the Wyandots) and the city (Washington, DC). He invites Finley to visit him on his way to General Conference in Baltimore.
