From D. Whitmore to Mary Tooth. They were sorry to hear from the preachers on Monday that [Mary] Fletcher is very unwell. They hope that they may receive a more favourable report on Monday morning by the bearer of this letter. They would also be grateful to hear if Tooth thinks that Fletcher would be fit enough to expound on Monday evening - if so, nothing would prevent them from travelling over to hear her on what would be the last opportunity this season, especially as they will have a good moon [to travel by].
Whitmore would also be grateful if Tooth could send word to the mistress of the Bridgnorth workhouse that the preacher who comes there from Stourport, and who asked Whitmore about getting a large room for the meeting at Bridgnorth, 'if he would call upon Mr Davy - Back Castle - Bridgnorth - I think he has a very good chance of obtaining his wish. I mentioned the circumstance to Mr Deacon on Monday, but there has been such confusion, I thought it as well to take this method also - as I well know you would not mind more trouble in such a cause.'
