John William Wesley (b. 1802?) Subseries, 1822-1824 and undated

3 items
Scope and content:

Letters written by John W. Wesley, son of Samuel Wesley (1766-1837). Both letters to his aunt, Miss Sarah Wesley, concern his growing business and indicate that she offered him assistance in the way of referrals. The letter to Rev. Newton expresses reverence toward his ancestors and a strong belief in the principles of Methodism. There is a fourth item, probably from an original collector, with John Wesley's name and his ancestry, that accompanied two of the letters.
