From Maurice to F. Baker. Maurice writes of his displeasure that he does not enjoy the same prospective advantages for his family as his fellow ministers. He writes that the relinquishment of his pulpit and his preaching was not an altogether voluntary decision as the imperfection of his voice and throat convinced him it would impractical to continue. He now finds himself in the category of superannuated ministers. Maurice states that instead of making a claim on the fund, which would be tenable, he will pay off his arrears and continue if he has the same prospective advantages as others.
