From 3 Hamilton Road, Highbury Park, London, to John Jackson [stationed in Colchester, Essex]. It would have been a pleasure for him to have visited Elmstead [near Colchester] again, but his health has been so poor this winter that he has had to avoid extra services. He needs to preserve his strength for his task of raising the allowances of the superannuated ministers and widows and can do nothing else but preach in connection with that work. He trusts that Colchester will send a good contribution.
