Letter

Scope and Content

From Anne Ray in London to [Mary Bosanquet]. If it is agreeable to Bosanquet and [Sarah Ryan], Sister Gerard, Suky [Susanna] and Ray will visit them at Leyton next Tuesday – if it is not convenient, Bosanquet can let them know on Sunday. Bosanquet can send a line with the preacher to Mrs McDonald and that will be time enough for Ray to hear on Monday.

She would have tried to see Bosanquet when she [Bosanquet] was in London but did not learn of the visit until too late. Spiritual matters are discussed in detail with particular regard to Ray’s spiritual progress.
