Bishop McKendree is pleased to hear about Finley's progress among the Wyandot Indians. He and Bishop George received a letter from William Alvis, a convert who wants to teach at the mission. Alvis asked if he could be paid by the Missionary Society of the MEC. McKendree does not think he has the power to approve such a thing, although he is adamant that whoever is hired as a teacher should be able to teach both reading and agriculture/husbandry. $100 has been collected in the south towards the work of Brother Stewart. A missionary has been appointed in the South Carolina Conference to establish missionary societies. He hopes that these societies will fund the establishment of Indian schools. Abstract Number - 607
