Scope and Content

From Haydon Hall, Middlesex, to Miss. Eliza Tooth in Stamford Hill, London, thanking her for forwarding the Wesley papers.

Reference is made to John Wesley's purchase for £1000 of the copyright in Charles Wesley's poetry, and his subsequent selection of what he considered to be the best of his brother's work.

Clarke would like to examine some of the other papers on Tooth's list, but he doesn't suppose that he will get the chance.

Any copies that she may have of Mrs. John Wesley's letters to Charles Wesley would be especially interesting.

He describes in detail his clash with Henry Moore re the question of access to John Wesley's personal papers. As for a new edition of his Memoirs of the Wesley family, the book committee is proving very obstructive.
