From [Henry Bergum in the Fleet Prison, London] to Charles Wesley, celebrating his imminent release 'from the ancient and Hon University haveing nearly completed my studies'. [Francis] Broderip and [James] Longman kindly provided him with a piano to amuse himself with during his incarceration. He would be very happy to have Charles's sons visit him for tea and 'a little music'. He has Jackson's Elegies. He is grateful to God and all the friends that have stood by him. [Longman and Broderip were a well known firm of London music publishers during the late eighteenth century. They were also makers of spinets, harpsichords, and pianos. Source: H. C.
