From Shrewsbury. [John] Radford offered an opportunity to take a few lines to Fletcher and Flavel decided not to let the chance pass.
She has spent much of this summer with friends and beside the sea, which did her [missing word] good.
Flavel longs to see Fletcher and also wants to know how she can be made more useful when Mrs Bridgman comes (if she can be spared), for Flavel wants her with her although they have not enough sewing to fill their time. If they had a small school it would be completely filled. Bridgman will hopefully be a blessing to Flavel and to the neighbourhood.
She is now on a visit to Miss Pritchard, but shall return in a few days.
- John Radford (1784-1848) was born in Bristol and was converted under the ministry of the Wesleyan Henry Moore. He entered the itinerancy in 1807 and exercised an active circuit ministry of forty-one years in England and Wales. He died suddenly from cholera while on his way home from the Conference of 1848.
