Young writes to Finley with concern about the condition of Christianity and the state of the country. He tells Finley "that the war spirit has put us back in the moral reformation ten years at least." He feels that the hearts of men have grown cold and "many more are lukewarm." Christians "thoroughly imbued with love of human kind" will be necessary to bring us out of darkness. Abstract Number - 529
