Scope and Content

From Sarah Wesley to Charles Wesley junior (care of his father) at the Foundery in London. She hopes that by this time he has received the letter which Sarah and Sally sent to London via Mr Jones(?). His letter to them arrived on Monday. Samuel was pleased to discover that he has not been forgotten by his brother. A cold has reduced his strength but hopefully the approach of Spring will effect a complete recovery. If Chesterfield Street 'is so much improved tis not unlikely but yr Papa's house there may be let: Had it been in Charlotte Street it wd not have remained unoccupied till now'. Is Charles junior still being taught by Mr Griffin? She supposes that [Joseph Kelway] is setting him some difficult music lessons to learn. Reference is made to Charles's harpsichord. He has a good neighbour in Mrs Footit. [Anne] Vigor, Mrs Farley, and Betsy(?) send their regards. Reference is made to his promise to write to Miss Sally James. In a postscript she asks that her compliments be passed on to Miss Harris and family.
