Scope and Content

From James Harris in Dawley to [Mary] Tooth in Madeley. He would be grateful if Tooth could preach in his place at Bridgnorth tomorrow as he is very unwell. He has tried to get a local preacher to fill his place but without success. If Tooth is unavailable, perhaps she could ask Mr Dovy.

[There is a James Harris listed as a local preacher on the 1813 Shrewsbury circuit plan. His number was 32 indicating that he had only recently become a preacher.]
