Letter from John Wesley to Robert Brackenbury, February 15th, 1785

First page and address page of a letter written by John Wesley to preacher and friend Robert (Carr) Brackenbury (1752-1818) in Ganges, Languedoc, France, in 1785.

John Wesley talks about Brackenbury's state of health, and that his visit in France should help restore it. He also makes reference to what would seem to be Brackenbury's plan to stay for a number of years in Jersey - which Wesley comments on: "I had almost say GOD forbid!" Nevertheless, this is where Brackenbury went following his visit to Ganges.
