From Sutton near Mansfield to Madeley. Reference is made to Cursham's poor health in recent weeks and his delay in replying to Fletcher's last. Spiritual matters are discussed.
He would be grateful for the prayers of Fletcher and her friends. His wife also continues in a very poor state of health. They should also pray for his two congregations.
In a postscript, he asks for an account of the 'state of religion' in Madeley.
