Scope and Content

From Samuel Wesley to Charles junior and Sally Wesley. He has been unable to raise the £100 in the manner that they proposed to Mr Ball, namely that Samuel's brother and sister would give security for the sum at Sarah Wesley's death, in case she outlives Samuel. His illness and the loss of £100 has reduced him to a state where he will certainly be arrested unless certain sums are repaid on Saturday next, and in his weakened state that may prove fatal.

If they can let him have £90, the remaining £10 would be the interest of two years to his mother in advance.

He will send round tomorrow afternoon for a reply.
