Letter 35
On (Tuesday) December 12, 1786, John Reynolds (1730-1792), London, wrote a letter to Bourton conveying the views of Dr (Samuel) Stennett on the distribution of money left for the poor by Mrs Seward. A side note shows the letter to have been passed on to Mr Reynolds' Church.
[John Reynolds, now aged 56, had followed Brine at Cripplegate. He was, of course, baptized at Bourton by Beddome, and in 1770 had received an honorary AM from Rhode Island. Mrs Seward, of course, is the great Baptist benefactor and friend of George Whitefield.]
