Calendar of Letters 03
On (Sunday) May 31, 1789, the church at Bourton-on-the-Water wrote to the Association meeting at Evesham.
It begins with "Greetings". It says that the Bourton Church "enjoys a measure of peace ... though Oneness of Heart is too much wanting." It complains that "the Spirit of Error is creeping into some of the churches, and that where the great doctrines of the Gospel are not totally rejected their importance is not properly attended to" and asks the Association to face this in their Circular·Letter.
The letter is signed by Beddome (who was ill), with James Ashwin, Edward Reynolds, Thomas Cressor, William Palmer, Richard Dalby, Joshua Parry, William Collett and Samuel Fox.
