Letter

Scope and Content

From George Clark to Madeley. On Monday night, he was again seized with a violent colic. He believes the Lord has sent it to bring Clark to God. It has brought on a fever which increases with every day. He has no appetite and is unable to sleep. Thanks be to God, he has never been nearer. 'He has testified what I call the completion of all the preceding work of Grace. My will is swallowed up in God…It is now a pleasing thought to depart and to be with Christ'. Spiritual matters are further discussed in detail. He has destroyed all Fletcher's letters. Mr Scallick will try to sell the books.

In a postscript he says that if Fletcher writes soon, he may have the pleasure of hearing from her once more.
