Scope and Content

To John Wesley, re the question of her marriage to Westley Hall. In truth she is indifferent as she much prefers a single life, but the pressure from her family to marry is considerable, and if it is not to Westley Hall then it will only be to someone else.

She is therefore resigned to accept her lot, although God might 'have blessed me with indulgent parents… who would have preferred my happiness before their own private satisfaction'. Spiritual matters are discussed in detail.

In a postscript, she regrets that she has been unable to obtain copies of Mr Law's treatises and Thomas Parnell's poems for Charles, and will therefore return his money.
