24th February 1790
A letter written by John Wesley to preacher and friend Robert Carr Brackenbury (1752-1818) in 1790. The letter illustrates how Wesley's hand writing deteriorated as he got older. Wesley found it increasingly hard to see, and sometimes he now dictated letters instead.
The spidery hand writing is hard to make out. Wesley is referring repeatedly to a bailiff who has changed his mind about an issue relating to a 'present storm'.
