Scope and Content

From [Joseph] Cownley in Newcastle on Tyne, to Charles Wesley at the New Room in Bristol, regretting that his illness in Leeds, Yorkshire, prevented him from writing earlier. He is slightly better, but is very depressed. His spiritual condition is discussed in some detail. Wesley need not be afraid that Cownley will harm Joseph Benson, for it is not the church which Cownley is bitter about, but her 'treacherous sons'. In a postscript he passes on the regards of his companions Brothers [Christopher] Hopper, Callender, Errington, and Sister Procter. Annotated by Charles Wesley - Cownley, poor reconciled to ye church.
