Scope and Content

Copy letter from Aberystwyth, Cardiganshire, enclosing a transcript of the following letter:

To Mr Smith re the circumstances surrounding Mr Trevelyan's donation of 100 guineas for the missions made during Coke's visit to Newcastle. Mr [Blackett] Trevelyan was at that time Deputy Lieutenant of Northumberland.

The following copy letter is also attached:

To Mr Blanshard of the Missionary Committee asking that the £400, which Coke had lent the Conference, be transferred into the Mission Fund. Coke hopes to recover his money through subscriptions.

Coke's plans to translate his Bible Commentary into Welsh are described, and he is confident of a good demand.

Reference is made to Mr Gilgrass, at present in the United States en route to England.

The island of St Christopher in the West Indies needs three missionaries.

The Committee should send the enclosed letter to Mr Turton appointing him to Bermuda. Turton had started the missions on St Bartholomew and in the Bahamas, but his health is now suffering.

Coke is pleased that Mr Daniel's request has been approved, and he asks if anything can be done for Mr Pindar.

Mrs Coke has now recovered from her toothache. n.d. [Oct. 1808]
