John Newton letter

Scope and Content

Address: Charles Square, Hoxton, [London]. To Rev Mr Charles, Milborne Port, Somerset. Comments approvingly on Charles's forthcoming marriage: '... there is something in domestic life that seems suited to improve our meetness for speaking to our people ... I am told you want a curacy'; he suggests acting as supply for Mr [John] Berridge at Everton, [Bedfordshire], with travelling expenses and a fee of £20. Mentions his recent transfer from Olney, [Buckinghamshire], to [St Mary Woolnoth], London: at Sunday evening services, the church is 'as full as an egg ... My letters in 2 vols. will be out before Christmas ...'.
Autograph, with signature.
