Scope and Content

From [Francis] F. Bretherton (President and General Secretary of the Wesley Historical Society) at 10 West Lawn, Sunderland, to Lewis Court in [Minehead, Somerset].

He was greatly interested by the reference in the M R to Court's collection of Bible Christian memorabilia. Bretherton has no interesting items, but in his large collection of material relating to Methodist history and biography, there is a large Bible Christian section. It consists of well-known standard books together with some rare works. He has for example volume II of the Arminian Magazine as published by the Bible Christians and has endeavoured in vain to acquire a copy of volume I.

Could he possibly receive a copy of the list referred to in the M R?.

Bretherton would be grateful to receive any duplicates that Court may have, and in turn would be pleased to try to fill any gaps in Court's series of magazines.

Minehead summons up very pleasant memories of a stay there during the Plymouth Conference, and of vacations there during the time that Bretherton was at Taunton School between 1878 and 1884.
