Datelined ''near Manchester'' on 3 April 1782, Wesley writes in full, ''Be of good courage! You have had a token for good at [King's] Lynn, where it was supposed the case was desperate. And I do not doubt, but you will see good days in & about Fakanham [Fakenham, England], tho the people as yet do not know much of Discipline. And no wonder, if they have never yet had ye Rules of our Societies. First, explain them at large, and afterwards inforce them very mildly & very steddily [sic]. Molly Franklin and Sister Proudfoot are very good Women. Deal very gently with them. And lovingly labour to convince those whom it concerns, of the evil of buying or selling on the Lord's Day. I am, Dear Tommy, Your affectionate Friend & Brother / J Wesley''. Single page letter measures 6.25'' x 8'', partially affixed to card stock measuring 7.75'' x 10''.
