Scope and Content

From Miss Katherine Thorne [daughter of James Thorne] in Adelaide Australia, to [Lewis] Court.

She very much appreciates Court's reverence for the founders of the Bible Christian Connexion.

Tom Piper of the Milbay Dye works, who was formerly a servant at Holwell said that he once spent a Sunday with [James Thorne] and heard him pray eleven times and preach three sermons. He also met a class and administered the Lord's Supper.

In a postscript, she recalls that she likes to think of her father as a high spirited farmer's boy, dressed in his fustian suit, who spent the whole night in prayer before preaching his first sermon in his father's house on Christmas morning 1815.
