Prayer notebook belonging to and signed by The Reverend Dr. Leslie D(ixon) Weatherhead, CBE (1893-1976). The notebook contains many handwritten prayers and a printed copy of 'A Litany of Remembrance', by the Rt. Rev. George Ridding, DD, published in 1925.

Leslie Weatherhead was a Methodist preacher of worldwide renown. He was known for his impressive appearance, clarity of thought and melodious voice. Some of his beliefs caused controversy among Methodists and non-Methodists alike, especially his interpretation of the Holy Trinity and the parentage of Jesus.
