The full title of the publication is "An Extract of the Minutes of Several Conversations held at Leeds, July 31st, 1797. Between the Preachers late in Connection with the late Rev. Mr John Wesley."
At the 1797 Leeds Conference, the rules and regulations governing Wesleyan Methodism (and published by John Wesley and the Connexion between 1763 and 1789) were looked at and carefully revised. They were then signed by the Preachers present. This publication was the outcome of the deliberations. Effectively, it enshrined the new rules and laws of Wesleyan Methodism.
