Scope and Content

From [Miss Burdock] in Bristol, to Mrs Jones at Fonmon Castle, Glamorganshire, regretting that she is not possessed of greater letter writing ability.

She can sympathise with Jones's problems, for Burdock too has experienced recent troubles. She was sorry also to hear that the children have been unwell. She does not know what to advise in Robin's 'affair'.

Miss Molly has not yet answered Burdock's last.

Charles Wesley and Charles Perronet are staying with them, while [John Wesley] is expected shortly at the Horsefair [New Room].

Reference is made to 'dreadful threatenings…hanging over us'.

[Thomas] Maxfield has married, while Mr Meyrick is close to great wealth through marriage.

Mrs Martin's marriage is she supposes old news.
