Ruter is trying to finish up work at the Book Concern so that he can leave for General Conference. He tells Finley that it is probably too close to General Conference to do anything about establishing a mission in Saginaw (Michigan) for the Chippewa Indians. Nevertheless, Ruter believes that it will eventually happen. He has heard that Finley's brother John P. Finley (professor, Augusta College) is in tolerable health. Ruter has learned that Jonathan Stamper (Kentucky Conference) has raised over $3,000 for the college. Abstract Number - 1010
