Crume writes to suggest that the Western Christian Advocate is too large and bulky for long term preservation. He would like to see the newspaper published in a quarto form (like the Pittsburgh Christian Advocate) which would be more convenient to have and keep. Crume would like Finley and the Ohio delegation to propose this change at General Conference. On another topic, Crume argues that there should be uniformity in the way churches do benedictions. -- "Let the congregations be dismissed kneeling at the close of the last prayer as on our sacramental occasions and the good impressions made during the service will be fostered & much disorder prevented." He reports good conditions at the prison. Abstract Number - 552
