Scope and Content

From the [Foundery], London, to Sarah Wesley in Ludlow, Shropshire. He has arrived safely.

On Tuesday afternoon at four he reached Evesham, Worcestershire, having largely escaped the stormy weather, and he preached there with 'great enlargem't of heart'. He met James Jones and persuaded him to accompany him to Oxford, which place they reached 'triumphantly' at three. He met John Wesley on his way writing from Reading in Berkshire.

Soon after four this morning he left for Mr Manning's house, and by six [in the afternoon] he was at the Foundery. He visited [Elizabeth?] Briggs, who is recovering well after being delivered of a dead child - caused so it is said by the earthquake.

N. P. [Edward Perronet] has left his horse for Charles's use.
