Finley's nephew, J.W., writes to say that all of the family are well, except himself. He is currently recovering from influenza. J.W. recently brought Parker home from Lima with the intention of sending him to school, but Parker is not a scholar, and does not want to go. He wants to take up a trade and says if they do not let him now he will do so when he comes of age. Since James B. Finley is his legal guardian, they can do nothing without his permission.
