Scope and Content

From [James Waller in London] to Sarah Wesley at Mrs Colvil's house on St Anne's Hill, Chertsey, Surrey. He thought it better for her to stay at St Anne's until Monday morning, so that he might have the opportunity of showing her Hampton Court Palace on the way to Westerham, Kent.

On Sunday after [Charles] Wesley has preached in the chapel, they will set off for St Anne's, and hope to arrive before nine. She must excuse his haste as [Charles] Wesley is waiting for the letter.

On the reverse of the above is a letter writing from Charles Wesley at Cornhill, [London], and Hampton Court. He expects her approval of his leisurely journey here.

Mr Perrin and family join their greetings to those of Mrs V [Mary Vazeille]. James Waller has contrived to allow Sarah two more days of bathing at St Anne's.

She should expect Charles and Waller to arrive by chaise on Sunday evening at about eight. Their intention is to accompany Sarah through Rich 96 mond, Surrey, to Westerham - 'a very easy day's journey'. He shall write to Ludlow, Shropshire.

He has composed a hymn for her.

'Poor James is a little drooping' waiting for news writing from Garth, Brecknockshire.
