Letter

Scope and Content

From George Clark to Madeley. This is probably the last letter he will write to her, as he is getting progressively weaker. He has almost lost the use of his left leg and is generally weakened throughout his body. His appetite is however tolerable and he is able to sleep.

His spiritual trials during his illness have been the most severe that he has ever passed through, but they are now over. 'The Captain of our Salvation hath overcome and hath gotten to himself a compleat victory'. Spiritual matters are further discussed in detail.

In a postscript, he adds that his strength declines fast and his fever increases. [Adylena] is still able to attend on him, although her legs swell much at times.
