Scope and Content

Letter from Rev John Kenworthy to Lord Stamford. The living of Stayley chapel is to be augmented with £200 from Queen Anne's Bounty, and the inhabitants have agreed to raise a benefaction of £200 in order to obtain a further £200 from the Bounty. Were Lord Stamford to subscribe £200, another £200 would be provided from the Bounty, thus increasing the curacy to £1000.
