Scope and Content

[Letters from New Street, London]

To an unnamed nephew [Charles Wesley], expressing concern at hearing reports of his poor health. Sally is of the opinion that the nurse often suffers more than the patient.

With regard to the organist's position at Revd Woodes church, Charles has contacted his former deputy organist Mr Paulitt, but he declined to offer his services, because of his friendship with Mr Kelly?, who was lately the organist at Fulham. It is good to see that there is honour within a profession that often witnesses 'competition for loaves and fishes'. He can also recommend Mr Goodhall of Bath, Somerset, and will write him with details, but he feels that the position may not pay enough for a married man. Mr Touny may also prove too expensive.
