Scope and Content

From Chesterfield Street, London, to Sally Wesley. He is of the opinion that a 'sensible Roman Catholic' is more than a match for a Calvinist. 'Her Ladyship' [Selina Hastings, Countess of Huntingdon]] is too close to the Antinomian extreme for his liking. 'Your disputants' wanted John Wesley to arbitrate - he would have brought the dispute to a swift conclusion.

Mr Hemmings can tell Sally the location of Mrs Gumley's house, and obtain directions to Mr Strahan's house.

Sally's parents can never forget the many kindness shown them by Lady H. [Selina Hastings, Countess of Huntingdon].

Mrs Coke and Mrs Smith both died in the peace of the Lord, and Sister Wesley(?) seems close to death.

In a postscript he asks that his love be passed to Mrs Freeman.
