Scope and Content

From Broseley. Heys is depending on Mr Loxdale to take his place at Coalbrookdale next Sunday morning. If Loxdale can take tea with Heys in the afternoon and preach once or twice at Broseley, that would be pleasing. At any rate, Heys would be grateful if Loxdale could supply for him at Madeley on Monday and [Madeley] Wood on Wednesday. Tooth should ask Loxdale accordingly and inform Heys of his mind on the matter.

In a postscript, Heys mentions that he has now been taking mercury for a full week and hopes that, with care, he shall be much better for it.
