Letter

Scope and Content

To Sally Wesley at the house of Mrs Doddridge in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, hoping that Sally's friend makes a good recovery.

The customary visit of Charles to Windsor, accompanied by Sarah and Mrs Jeffries is described in detail. Charles met King George III by chance at the Lodge, and was invited to play on the organ that evening. His Majesty was delighted with Charles's performance of Unto us a Son is Born, and the Hallelujah Chorus. They later attended the concert given in the grounds of the Castle, and Sarah conversed with the King about her sons' abilities, and the importance of music in worship. His Majesty declared that 'His opinion of Handel's Messiah was higher than he chose to say'. Reference is made to Dr Aylward.

Windsor was very crowded and this prevented her from calling at the Methodist Chapel.

Upon her return to London, Sarah had dinner with her nephew N B [Baldwyn?].

In a postscript she mentions that 'poor Charlotte' was pleased to see her and sends her best wishes.
