Appeal in Behalf of the Diocese of Ohio in the Western Territory
of the United States
(London: Richard Watts, 1823)

Soon Bishop Chase realized that his new diocese needed help-- without a consistent supply of trained clergy, it simply could not survive.  Chase appealed to the eastern diocese, but they were of little assistance. And the new General Theological Seminary in New York provided no help either. Chase determined that in order to get ministers in the West, he must train them in the west. This idea proved very unpopular with the other diocese, but Chase persisted. If they would not support his cause, he would look elsewhere-- to England.
