Scope and Content

From George Clark in London, to Madeley. Spiritual matters are discussed in detail with particular regard to Fletcher's tribulations since the death of John Fletcher.

Fletcher states that she must continue living at Madeley, which cuts Clark off from all hope of ever seeing her - 'no little cross'. He is so weak through a nervous disorder that he is unable to travel. Last evening he was struck down quite forcibly, suffering from strong convulsions and difficulty in breathing. He expected that death would swiftly follow - spiritual matters are discussed in detail.

'I have neither fear nor care tho we run out daily, as the news business brings in but 17 shillings a week between my man and me and we get very little by electricity, but at present we want nothing. Mr [John Wesley] did read those papers - suppose you have had some of the sermons'.

His daughter Mrs Addy is better and is close to the time of delivery of another child. Sister Cayley is quite well - she is at Hackney.
