In 1742, I am informed that they separated; and shortly after the Lord sent down, first, I think, the Rev. Charles Wesley, and then the Rev. John, his brother, to Bristol. John Nelson joined them. Towns, villages, and country received the word with gladness, and great was the ingathering of souls. Leeds, Bristol, Halifax, Osset, Gumersell, Horton, and many other places have cause to praise God for those seasons.
