William Simmons has been appointed to the London Circuit, Lebanon District, for the conference year 1821-1822, along with Rev. Daniel D. Davidson. He describes the progress he is making in his circuit. He has received a letter from Rev. Swormstedt, who is serving the Zanesville appointment. A wonderful revival was held there in late December which resulted in the addition of many new members. Simmons reports that Bro. Davidson is doing good work on the London Circuit. He is "all on fire preaching and shouting." Simmons has learned that Rev. Morey (Platt B. Morey, Detroit appointment) has died (December 18, 1821), and asks Finley to send him "particulars." Finally, Simmons would like a letter from Finley telling about how he is "progressing among the savages." Abstract Number - 603
