Rev. Henry M. Turner writes from Columbus, Ohio
Christian Recorder: March 17, 1866
Please tell our Bishop, my humble opinion is, that they had better send one, two, or three ministers to the Southern General Conference, which meets in New Orleans. There are certain reasons why we should send delegates to that Conference, and if they do so, it will save trouble. But if they do not, you may look for war after that body adjourns. My earnest hope is that our connexion will delegate to the Southern Methodist General Conference, and let them be our ablest men."
