Printed circular

Scope and Content

To the Itinerant Brethren, issued by order of the Connexional Committee.

The first part of this letter concerns the use of the word Reverend by certain itinerant preachers. This is deemed to be contrary to Connexional practice and must cease, as it is likely to cause financial loss to the Missionary Society.

Signed by [Matthew] Robins.

30 Jan.1857.

The second part of this letter sets the date and time of the next meeting of the Missionary and other Committees as May 13th [1857]. The meetings will be held at Shebbear. Details of the Book account are also enclosed.

Signed by James Thorne.
