Scope and Content

From Leeds, Yorkshire, on behalf of the Conference, to Charles Wesley, Junior, re the chapel at Lakenheath in Suffolk. Coke states that the value of the property is no more than C60, that it was built by public subscription, and not with money raised by John Wesley. Moreover it had never been used except as a place of worship. Bearing the above in mind, Conference believes that a Court of Equity would order 'ample relief' to the Lakenheath Methodists, should the building be taken away from them. Coke adds as his personal opinion, that he would not 'convert a place of divine worship from its original use for a thousand worlds'.
