Letter

Scope and Content

[Letter written to Lincoln College, Oxford.] To John Wesley, describing her poor health.

He was very unkind during his recent visit not to mention his financial difficulties, as to help friends is one of life's greatest pleasures.

She is unacquainted with the ladies that he refers to, but she is pleased that he found agreeable company and conversation during his stay. She had hoped however that her company would be sufficient.

Her fraught relationship with her sisters is described at length.

Brother Samuel's attitude toward her has much improved, and he has even offered to lend her money. She is therefore willing to forget the harm that he did her in destroying her relationship with Robert Leyborn.
