Scope and Content

From Mrs K. Keysall to [Joseph Benson], thanking him for his visit. Spiritual matters are discussed. Her health is very poor her sleep is disturbed, she is finding it difficult to eat, and is so weak that she can barely stand. The 'heavy yoke of tyranny' under which she labours is getting worse. She fears that her husband is being influenced against her by his Methodist man servant Edward, who has always shown scant civility towards her, and who meddles in the affairs of the other servants. His master is very partial towards him, because of his sycophantic attitude. Fortunately Edward is about to leave their service.
