Scope and Content

From Thomas Micklewright to Mary Tooth. Her concern for the welfare of his immortal soul and kindness in removing temporal obstacles gives him cause for great thankfulness. Spiritual matters are discussed in detail.

Tooth should permit him to say one word concerning her health – she is called on to ‘labour in the Lord’s vineyard’ but Micklewright is concerned that she does not take enough care of her health, which he knows is in a weak state. May the Lord bless her with strength enough to ‘be enabled to go through all your several appointments with ease: I know you do it with great delight…’ Spiritual matters are further discussed in detail.
