Printed by Paramore, Worship Street, London, 1792
First published in 1745, this pamphlet is a later edition dating to 1792. The pamphlet recounts Wesley's experiences in Wednesbury, Staffordshire, in autumn 1743, when he was set upon by an angry mob. Fortunately, Wesley was sheltered by some local people in a hay barn and he escaped harm.
Wesley's experience was not uncommon. Early Methodists were viewed with suspicion; itinerant preachers often had to contend with disgruntled locals and physical attacks.
