      n.d [9 Jun 1764]

Scope and Content

From Litchfield Street, [London], to Sarah Wesley in [Bristol]. 'Last night we sent you the joyous bridegroom. Send us him back with interest within the month…'.

He passed this morning in the company of Mr and Mrs Powys. He is sorry to have so many happy meetings without having Sarah there to share them -'Your presence quickens me so much & adds so much to my happiness'.

After dining at Brother Butcher's house, he visited and prayed with Mr Osgood, who is very close to death. Osgood has asked him to 'do the last friendly office for him' [officiate at his funeral].

Next week Sarah should expect another packet by Mr Gilbert and his family. J. D wishes to employ Sarah, [Anne] Vigor, Mr Ireland, and Mr James to find him a house near the [New] Room - they will make good neighbours.

Mrs Powys admires Charles for his clothes - 'would you think it?'. So does Mrs Gallatin, and all who have seen him in his black coat and new wig. Sarah would hardly recognise her own husband.


'Some cried out under the word ys morning, but not so as to disturb us'. After administering the sacrament, he left despite his weariness, to give communion to Mr Osgood.

He dined at Richard Moss's house with Mr Gilbert and his family, and has just dismounted writing from his horse on his way to meet the society. He will return to his lodgings for a band-meeting.
