Scope and Content

From Revd. Charles Wesley [son of Samuel Wesley the musician] in the Crescent, to Revd. S. Evans. Charles is obliged to visit Cambridge on Wednesday, and may be detained through Sunday. Could Evans deliver the morning sermon for him at St. Mary's [Pimlico, London], and 'consecrate the elements in the sacraments?'.

He would not ask this favour, except he understands that Evans is delivering the afternoon lecture at the church.
