Printed by S. Hazard, Bath, 1770
An old label stuck into the book records that this Countess of Huntingdon Connexion hymn book was given by Charles Wesley to his son, Charles Wesley junior. The book bears the latter's signature and date, '1776'.
The Countess of Huntingdon was an early supporter of John Wesley but their differing views on predestination, among other things, caused an early split into Arminian and Calvinist Methodism. The Countess of Huntingdon Connexion took a more Calvinist direction, with emphasis on predestination.
