Scope and Content

From Miss C. Rhodes in Nottingham, to [Frances] Pawson at the chapel in Leeds, Yorkshire. She is unable to carry out Pawson's request at present as [William] Bramwell has been away for ten days visiting the Hull Methodists. He is not expected back until the latter part of this week.

The national day of fasting [re the war with France] took place here with the proper reverence. The King, the Church and the nation are often prayed for in private as well as in public, as Rhodes mentioned in her last to [Sarah] Crosby. The need for such humbling before God is very strong, and Rhodes would like to see one day a month set aside for fasting.

Spiritual matters are discussed and reference made to Rhodes reading The history of Abram.

[Written at a later date]

[William] Bramwell has returned from Hull 'full of the blessings of the gospel'. Mrs Blayburne[?] has sent a good account of the work, while [Joseph] Entwisle 'is quite alive'.
