Scope and Content

To Joseph Benson at the Preaching House, Manchester, re their dispute over unspecified religious and personal matters [Benson's alleged Arian tendencies]. Reference is made to Benson's regret that Coke was ever admitted to the Society, and Benson's rudeness and lack of humility in believing that his 'pernicious error', is shared by most of the preachers.

Attached to this letter is a card in Coke's handwriting, bearing the address of Henry Dundas, Secretary of State, and on the reverse an engraving of Joseph Benson at the age of thirty-two.
