From C.W [presumably C. Wallace] to F. Baker. Wallace writes that he will drop off the books Baker asks for at his brother's offices, and is glad that Baker is deciding to publish. He mentions that there is talk that Ashton will be moved to Croft, Cheshire and that he has done everything in his power to promote this. There is a dispute mentioned, and Wallace disagrees with the way a ministry is using money, stating that they have 'ambitious views and small means'. A controversy is mentioned along with news from other ministries and clergy.
Dated at Hale Lodge.
