Scope and Content Note
The collection consists of papers relating to the Wesleyan Methodist Church and Conference in Great Britain from 1748-1916. The papers include loose correspondence of Wesleyan Conference presidents and ministers (1748-1916); bound volumes of correspondence; and broadsides, circular letters, and other printed materials (1759-1895). Three of the bound volumes, created to document the service of each Conference president, include a biographical sketch, a portrait, and a representative piece of their original correspondence. Two volumes contain the same type of materials documenting various Wesleyan ministers and one volume contains a variety of material relating to John Wesley. Each volume has some sort of index or contents page in the front of the volume directing the user to the exact page number in that volume for a particular item.
Unprocessed collection; roughly arranged by record type.
