Scope and content

A volume of 'Unpublished Letters from Joanna Southcott, To her Friends And various other persons. Collected by Gwilym Owain. Vol. V', the letters belonging to the years 1802 and 1803. The manuscript has 'MSS TRACTS' '5' in gold on the spine. The contents, a list of which is to be found at the beginning of the volume, are transcripts of letters, mainly from Joanna Southcott to the following persons: J. E. Field; the Reverend Stanhope Bruce; Ben Hadad, [London]; W[illiam] Sharp; [Richard] Brothers; [Beilby Porteus], Bishop of London; [Elias] Carpenter; [Nathaniel Brassey] Halhed; and the Reverend Mr. Wood, Lisson Green. Some of the letters have been written from Old-swinford and short letters from the Reverend Thos. P. Foley are appended to four of them. There is also a letter from Thos. P. Foley to W[illiam] Sharp and another from Geo[rge] Turner, Leeds, to E. T. Field with copies of letters from Turner to Lord Pelham and to [Henry Addington], Chancellor of the Exchequer. A loose leaf within the volume, in the hand of William Owen [-Pughe], would appear to contain an index of subjects connected with the Joanna Southcott material.
