Letter

Scope and Content

To John Wesley at Lincoln College, Oxford, describing her poor state of health, and expressing her regret at the news of Mr Morgan's continuing illness.

She is sure that John's friend is correct concerning 'the real presence of Christ in the Sacraments'. The significance of Holy Communion is discussed at length.

Reference is made to her devotion to ensuring that her children were educated in a Christian manner.

In a postscript addressed to Charles, she hopes that he will write soon, or perhaps return home in the spring.

She has been informed of the efforts of Patty's enemies to force her out of her Uncle Matthew Wesley's house in London. It is a pity that she 'has not a little of the subtlety of the serpent', for she is no match for those who wish her harm.

Has Charles any news of John Whitelamb?
