Scope and Content

From Charles Wesley junior in Richmond Place, Brighton, Sussex ('removed from Devonshire Place last week'), to Miss Tooth in Hoxton Square, London. Dr Emerson has told Charles that Samuel Wesley is suffering from convulsions. He is apparently being attended to by Dr Penkard. Charles does not know if the report is true or false.

Mr Reece should send the money allowed to Charles each year by the Methodist Conference direct to Richmond Place.

The Brighton air is very agreeable and Mrs Green is certainly the better for it. They are near to Charles's old friends the Jeffreys family, the doctor, and Mrs Thompson.

Their Royal Majesties are expected here on Monday. Illuminations are being prepared for their visit.

The local minister here is Revd. Elliot, who is a good evangelical from a family well known to the Wesleys. One of the girls of the family is married to the Dean of Salisbury, while Mrs Elliot's father was that excellent preacher 'Mr Dunn of the north'.

Charles's cousins send their regards, and Charles would like his special greetings passed to Mrs Tooth.

Reference is made to several friends namely Mrs Mortimer, Mrs Jones, the Howden family, and Mr and Mrs Camlyn(?).

In a postscript he asks for news of Samuel Wesley's health. [Related Material: DDWes 6/80]
