Rev. Brockmeier tells of his poor health, due to being thrown from a horse. He discusses radicalism, or "raskilism" in the Pittsburgh Conference. Rev. Brown and Rev. Shinn have broken away from the Conference and are part of a small Methodist Protestant group led by Rev. Avery in Pittsburgh. Brockmeier tells Finley that this is "no great loss." He also reports that three appointments have been lost on his circuit, presumably joining with the breakaway denomination. The 1830 Pittsburgh Conference went very well. Brockmeier includes a list of the appointments for 1830-1831. Abstract Number - 9
