Scope and Content

From Mrs C. Wells in Oxford, to Charles Wesley, re Wesley's conversion and discussing theology in general. Mr Gambold allowed her to read John Wesley's sermon, and while she is no expert she can detect nothing in its doctrine to condemn. She has heard of a certain [Howell] Harris, who is doing good work in Wales. A former student of St Mary Hall, Oxford, he is not an ordained minister but travels around preaching for three or four hours at a time to crowds that number in their thousands. She understands that John Wesley and Mr Ingram(?) [Benjamin Ingham?] 'are gone into the lands of faith and miracles'.
