Letter

Scope and Content

Manuscript copy letter from A. C. in Stenson to an unnamed correspondent and subsequently forwarded to Mary Bosanquet

As A.C. was about to write to her dear friend, she perused her last truly Christian letter. It caused her heart to overflow with gratitude 'and brought my soul into a weeping frame, to think of boundless, unmeasurable stupendous love of God ...Oh for ten thousand tongues to sing the Great Redeemer's praise. Oh for ten thousand hearts to give ...'. Spiritual matters are further discussed in great detail, with particular regard to A.C's spiritual progress.

The copy is annotated at the end of the text with the following contemporary annotation: "The above is a copy of a letter from a person whose experience I lately sent you, she is a servant maid and has always been in that capacity, which makes it more excellent, but indeed it shows in a wonderful manner the mighty power of divine grace" - further annotated by Bosanquet - "To read"
