Bishop Enoch George is on his way to Canada, but requests that Finley (Presiding Elder of Lebanon District) meet him at the July camp meeting in Lebanon to discuss the case of Rev. William Burke (suspended from Ohio Conference in 1818). Burke has been complaining about his suspension as "cruel and unconstitutional" and blames Finley for acting contrary to his own rule. Burke's complaint will be brought up at the next Ohio Conference, so Bishop George wants to discuss the situation with Finley. Abstract Number - 606
