Letter

Scope and Content

From Miss Rhodes in Leeds, Yorkshire, to [Frances] Pawson, re spiritual matters.

She is considering spending some time in Skipton, as her sister is again very sick.

With regard to the rumour of Miss Ritchie's engagement to marry, [Sarah] Crosby recently received a letter from the lady in question and no mention was made of such a plan, so one can assume there is no truth in the report.

A very pleasing account of the work in London has recently been received 'since the spirit of our Elijah [John Wesley] has taken its flight, the mantle has not fallen upon Elisha only, but…the people also, and a double portion of the spirit of God seems to rest upon the preachers, the congregations are so great …that beholders wonder with astonishment'.
