Scope and Content

Photocopy of a letter. Written from [Wooler, Northumberland]

As her friends were interested in Miss Ackroyd's other letters she will copy for them what she has received today from her. This Whitsuntide she has received special Pentecostal visions and feels sure 'His second Advent is here.' She expects every day His Holy Fire to break out in Scotland, all around Mr Allan.

JB thinks that Miss A. is 'Spirit taught', but she asks her friends 'to use her letters with great care and prudence'
