Scope and Content

From Martha Hall to Sally Wesley at the New Room in Bristol. She was pleased to discover that Sally's cough is better, which improvement can be attributed to fresh air. She was not so happy however to read Sally's description of her nerves as being 'in a perfect state of weakness', but she was not surprised for while Sally has not in recent months had any 'vexation', that was made up for by the troubles of the period preceding, which were 'enough to have shoke your tenement of clay into the dust'. Martha discusses at length Sally's wish for God to protect her from 'the storms of passion and the strife of pride forever'. In a postscript she passes on the love of Mrs Shariff etc.
