  1. Letters and Manuscripts of the Wesley Family From the Collections of Drew University

    Creator: Wesley, Sarah, 1759-1828. and Wesley, Charles, 1707-1788.
    Description: Digital images of manuscripts written by members of the Wesley family. The majority of these are letters, but also included are hymns and poems, a sermon by John Wesley, a petition, Thomas Coke’s ordination certificate, the will of Charles Wesley’s daughter Sarah, and some of the few surviving copies of minutes from the Irish conferences of 1778, 1784, and 1785. Wesley family members represented are John and Charles Wesley; their brother Samuel Jr. and their sisters Emelia, Martha, and Mary; Charles’s wife Sarah Gwynne, sons Charles Jr. and Samuel, and daughter Sarah; and Charles’ son Samuel’s estranged wife Charlotte and his son Samuel Sebastian (the famous composer). Many of these manuscripts are originals, but some are eighteenth- and nineteenth- century handwritten copies. Except for letters to Freeborn Garrettson copied by his wife Catherine, the identities of the copyists are unknown.

  2. Wesley manuscripts and selected Wesleyana from the Collections of Bridwell Library.

    Creator: Wesley, Charles, 1707-1788. and Bridwell Library.
    Description: <p>This collection contains images of holographic letters from John Wesley, Charles Wesley, and other members of their immediate families to various individuals, and of memorabilia of Wesley and the Methodist movement, including portraits, prints, and ceramics.</p> <p>Nearly all the manuscript letters in this collection consist of a single sheet of paper. This sheet was typically folded to provide several pages for writing. When the letter was completed, it was refolded with a blank page outward, sealed with wax and addressed on the outside. (For a detailed description of how Wesley folded, sealed and addressed his letters, see: Wesley, John. Letters I: 1721-1739 / edited by Frank Baker. The Oxford Edition of the Works of John Wesley; v. 25. New York: Oxford University Press, 1980. p. 68-76) The condition of the manuscripts varies, but most are well preserved. Some are missing part of the original sheet, sometimes including the portion that contained the address. In a few, part of the text itself is missing.</p> <p>The manuscripts are digitized unfolded. The orientation of the greeting or salutation determines the top, and the side containing the greeting or salutation is treated as the recto of the item.</p>

    Creator: Wesley, Charles, 1707-1788.
    Description: Inserted at the end of the concluding pamphlet in a collection of thirteen treatises published under the title, A Preservative against Unsettled Notions in Religion. Bristol: E. Farley, 1758. This insertion, along with a few corrections in the text, are Charles' emendations preparatory to a separate publication of the pamphlet in 1760 (two editions), which also included seven new hymns by Charles. Although the only other publication of the Preservative collection (1770) did not include these changes, two subsequent editions of the Reasons, including the alterations, appeared after that: in John Wesley's collected Works (vol. 23, 1773) and a separate edition (1785). In the latter two editions, one word of Charles's poetry was amended, apparently by John, but Charles's other changes and additions were kept. JPG file (493 KB).
