From John Wesley to Robert Brackenbury, May 8th, 1780

A short letter written by John Wesley to preacher and friend Robert (Carr) Brackenbury (1752-1818) at the Orphan House in Newcastle in 1780.

Wesley informs Brackenbury of his travel plans and writes: "I am glad You are so far recovered from your late Disorder". In later correspondence between the two men in the mid 1780s there are further references that Brackenbury's health was fragile, apparently due to a chronic lung complaint.
