Letter

Scope and Content

From Ann Chapman in Bristol, to Chesterfield Street, London.

Passing reference is made to various friends of the Wesley family in Bristol, namely the Mrs Staffords, Miss Johnson, Mrs Jones, Mrs Lewis, Mr Durbin, Mrs Bulgin, the Hopkins family, and Mr and Mrs Roberts.

The very bad weather is rather trying, especially for people who have their homes in exposed situations like the Chapmans.

Her health has improved but her maid has caught a cold, and appears to be 'going fast in a decline'.

Is Sally Wesley away from home? Chapman would love to hear from her, and trusts that the 'waters' did her good.

The times are very hard for the poor.

Reference is made to concern about the health of King George III.
