From John Wesley to George Merriweather, December 10th, 1768

A short letter from John Wesley to George Merryweather (c. 1743-1817) in Yarm, Yorkshire.

Wesley advises as to conduct in the Yorkshire societies.

George Merryweather was a Yorkshire salt merchant whose family was very supportive of, and friendly with, John Wesley. Reputedly, John Wesley stayed in their home on Yarm High Street on nineteen occasions. In 1763 Merryweather donated land on the banks of the River Tees and, along with Wesley, helped in the design and construction of an octagonal chapel there.
