The document describes Cole as 'very eloquent, informing, awakening. evangelical, and casuistical; labouring much to abase the Sinner, and exalt Christ and Free Grace'. Nuttall suggests this is evidence of Cole's continuing influence to the south, east and west, as well as in London and Gloucestershire. It is on the basis of 'personal and intimate Acquaintance' with Cole that 10 ministers put their names to the manifesto. Besides Beddome there are two from London, two from Somerset, four based in Gloucestershire and George Whitefield.
5. George Gibbs Congregationalist minister of Thornbury from about 1733.
The document was published by Robert Raikes (1736-1811).
