Scope and Content

[Undated Letter of Sally Wesley]

From Bristol to Sarah Wesley, thanking her for her letters.

She accompanied her father in the rain to visit Mrs Butler, and has a sore throat as a result.

On Thursday she called on Mrs Berkin?, who is one of Sally's favourites at Bristol 'amongst the superior ages'. Her daughter is very amiable also.

She supposes that her mother was very surprised at the Miss Durbin's hasty acceptance of a proposal of marriage from a man who already has children. Sally does not envy her - only 'great advantages or wonderful excellencies' would induce her to marry. Mrs Hutchins is a constant remainder of the sacrifices that she would have to make.

Mrs Stafford sends her best wishes.
