Description

Correspondence to the annual conference of Methodists in Philadelphia in 1820. Letters to conference typically include: requests and recommendations for circuit preachers; reports of misbehavior by or censure of members; and requests for or receipts of financial compensation or other aid.

A separate index of the correspondence for 1820 exists and is scanned separately. Many letters from this year pertain to the Committee on Charters. Other letters suggest the development of a seminary and church school. Also of note, the continuing dispute between the New Mills and Burlington circuits, which had previously been one circuit, over the profits from sale of the once-shared parsonage.
