Footnotes

  1. 1

    It is unclear why this conference was referenced in Haws’s license, since it is very unlikely that his license was issued by the direction of a council on 6 April 1840. One possibility is that this license was printed the previous year and filled out without the form being updated. (See Minutes and Discourse, 6–8 Apr. 1840; and License for Hosea Stout, 20 Apr. 1840.)
