Scope and Content

From Samuel Wesley to Sarah Wesley. He shares her fear of possible civic disturbance on Monday had the authorities clamped down sooner they would not have had this problem.

The report of the coal miners planning insurrection has perhaps some foundation. Samuel spoke recently with a gentleman, who claims to have seen several miners wearing blue cockades.

If an outbreak occurs in Samuel's locale, he has no doubt that it will be swiftly put down.

He supposes that Sarah has been informed of the death of Mr Washboro's father.

Samuel longs to see his family. He supposes that his father Charles senior is 'a great support to your [unreadable word] in trouble'.

His regards should be passed on to his aunts, and cousins etc.

In a postscript he passes on the regards of Mr Haynes, and Miss Hill.
