Scope and Content

From Thomas(?) Jones in Brecon, to Charles Wesley. He is sending this letter at the direction of Mrs Price, formerly of Hereford, but now of this town, to ask Wesley to inform her of his wishes with respect to the disposal of the effects of the late Mrs Joan Gwynne. The deceased had appointed her five nieces as executrix, with instructions that her property be divided equally between them.

Mrs Price wishes to cooperate fully in this matter with the executrix and Wesley, and will therefore arrange for Gwynne's furniture to be sold. She also asks that the case of Mary [or Margaret] Jones be brought to their attention. Although Jones was Gwynne's maid for many years and attended her faithfully until the end, she has been left only £10. Price suggests that Wesley and the others each contribute twenty shillings per annum for Jones's upkeep.

In a postscript she asks that the contents of this letter be communicated to [Elizabeth] Waller and Rebecca Gwynne.
