From Charles Wesley to Sarah Wesley. From Great Russell Street, London. They have so far had a very prosperous journey, which has cost him nothing but thanks to God and man. His fellow travellers salute her as does Sister Butterfield, [?Martha] Hall and [John] Downes. Charles's love should be given to [Anne] Vigor and [Miss Furly] etc.
He was met by Isaac [Wesley's manservant] and went with him to [the Countess of Huntingdon], who he found in a deep depression as Lady Selina [her daughter] is at the point of death.
Charles is in great health. He shall now have supper 'take a sweat, & go to bed'.
In a postscript he asks her to give his blessing with a kiss or two to each of the children.
