Scope and Content

Copy letter from Lincolnshire to Ezekiel Cooper in the United States, informing him of Coke's intended departure for America in October [1803]. Coke reiterates his intention to remain permanently in America, despite efforts by the British Connexion to change his mind.

The West Indian Mission continues to be supported, and reference is made to Coke's continued good health.

In a postscript Coke states that 1,100 new converts have been made in Britain in the last year, and that the country is threatened with a French invasion.
