1777 JOHN WESLEY ORIGINAL LETTER – SIGNED. A Fine Copy of an Original Signed Letter by the Founder of Methodism. Autograph letter signed,’J. Wesley’, Bristol, 27 September 1777. Item Description: A fine letter with. Some heavy spots and slight age wear, two pages, 4to. I entirely concur with you in your sentiments upon this delicate occasion. Altho I would show all possible tenderness & levity to those who think differently from myself, either with respect to discipline or doctrine, yet I cannot see that it is at all expedient, to intrust them with that power wch. Enables them to undermine either our doctrine or discipline. Therefore I do not judge Mr [John] Hampson to have done any thing more than it was his bounden duty to do. Indeed I was slow in coming to a determination upon the head: I wanted to hear all parties. I weigh’d all the letters I received from Mr Hampson on the one side, from Bro. Hall, Kidd, and ye two Clarks, on the other. And I then saw clearly if they would behave quietly, they might be Members of our Society, not withstanding their opinions, wch. But for leaders they could not be’, continuing with further reference to Mr Hampson, S. Bradburgh, and Mr Boardman. John Hampson (1731/2-1795) was an itinerant Methodist preacher under John Wesley, leaving the Methodists in 1784 and becoming master of the free school at Southborough, Kent.
