J.W. Finley informs his uncle of his good health, and discusses the work of his circuit. Within the Monroe Circuit, there are three local preachers, and three exhorters. One of the exhorters is the brother of Dr. Bangs. There are many backsliders in the territory who have recently emigrated but do not attend church. There is a great call for books in the circuit but J.W. does not think he will be able to get them until May. He sends Finley a list of books he would like to have. The weather has been extremely cold. He asks James to pray for him. Abstract Number - 962
