Printed by William Pine, Bristol, 1763
The full title of John Wesley's 'letter' or pamphlet was 'A Letter to the Right Reverend The Bishop Of Gloucester. Occasioned by his tract, on the office and operations of the Holy Spirit.'
Following its publication in 1763, the letter occasioned an impassioned reply by one Samuel Charndler, who entitled this: 'An answer to the Rev. Mr. John Wesley's letter to William, Lord Bishop of Gloucester : concerning The Charges alledged against him and his Doctrine, in a Book lately published, entitled, The Doctrine of Grace, or the Operation of the Holy Spirit vindicated from the Insults of Infidelity, &c. In a Letter to the Rev. Mr. John Wesley.'
