From the Conference [in Sheffield] to [Mr Jackson]. May God bless Jackson and his wife. Bardsley was greatly obliged by the letters sent with [Thomas] Laycock.
Bardsley was pleased to read that Jackson 'attends the chapel so well'. Jackson has a good opportunity for reading. Bardsley hopes that Jackson and his wife pray together. He was glad to hear about Jackson's son and Miss Jackson.
