Scope and Content

From Anne Loxdale at Bradley Lodge, Staffordshire, to Joseph Benson at the Preaching House in Manchester, re spiritual matters. Since sending her letter of yesterday, she regretted not asking Benson to preach for them in the afternoon as well as the morning. This would enable all those 'that wd hear you at Wednesbury' to hear him also at Bilston. Also if he were to preach twice it would greatly increase the collection, which is important for their society is small (twenty two members), and poor. Bearing the above in mind she hopes that he will excuse her 'selfishness' in asking such a favour. In a postscript she asks for an early reply, as she needs to publicise the arrangements in Mondays Birmingham newspaper.
