From Rebecca Gwynne to Charles Wesley at Mr Boult's house in Christopher's Alley, Upper Moorfields, London, re the condition of his son [John James], who is suffering from the distemper.
[Sarah] Wesley is 'pritty well excepting her nose which mends but slowly…her legs also are still plaistered'.
They were pleased to discover that Charles has seen [Elizabeth] Waller, and that her husband [James] was friendly. They are sure that Charles was of great comfort to her.

At the bottom of the above is Charles Wesley's reply. The only worthwhile thing in life is 'enjoy & glorify our God'. Reference is made to his dangerous recent illness.
His heart yearns for his son, but he is in God's hands.
