From John Wesley to Charles Delamotte, February 11th, 1779
A personal letter written by John Wesley to Mr Charles Delamotte at Barrow, near Barton, in Lincolnshire.
Charles Delamotte (c. 1714-1786) was the son of a London sugar merchant of Huguenot descent, who had accompanied John Wesley to Georgia in 1735. He was a close companion and confidant of Wesley at the time. Later, after returning to England, Delamotte joined the Fetter Lane society and later the Moravians. He finally settled in Barton on Humber and supported the work of Moravian Benjamin Ingham in Yorkshire.
