Martin Ruter (Book Agent at the Cincinnati branch of the Methodist Book Concern, 1820-1828), rejoices in the success of Finley's work at the Wyandot Mission. He reports that an independent missionary society has been formed in Cincinnati (not an auxiliary of the Missionary Society of the MEC) with the aim of supporting only the Wyandot Mission. $30 has already been raised. In addition, $60 worth of goods and clothing have been collected at West Union. Ruter has asked Jacob Young to collect $100 owed to the Book Concern in his district, which will then be forwarded to Upper Sandusky. He has also asked G.R. Jones to procure 100-150 yards of factory cotton cloth for the mission. Abstract Number - 1008
