Scope and Content

From 39 Hamilton Road, Highbury Park, London, to John [Hutchinson] Norton [stationed in Burton on Trent, Staffordshire]. He was grateful for the brotherly invitation. J R is not allowed to preach more than once a day, 'but that once if it pleases God, I would give you next October, why not YOU take the other part of the day say Oct.19th'. Norton's reference to the thanksgiving fund is quite correct, 'there is no pity or mercy for our fund or any other just now but driving the one. My wonder is that the preachers can find so much money - delicacy prevented me asking them. It will be thrown at them on a future day, but it is true that many of our supers & widows are very ill-paid & ought to be considered'.
