Scope and Content

Copy letter from Harrogate, Yorkshire, to Robert Carr Brackenbury at Raithby Hall, Lincolnshire, thanking him for his gift of £20 towards the missions, and his subscription to Coke's History of the West Indies, the first volume of which he hopes to complete shortly.

Coke is confident that the 'awful times' in which they are living herald the second coming of Jesus Christ.

The persecution of the Society in Jamaica is described, including the imprisonment of Mr Gilgrass, and -the recent death from fever of Mr Firth and his wife. Mr Knowlan's health is also poor. Coke has received his copies of Miss Ward's poems.
