TitleLetter from Thomas Cole, to Edwin Edlin; n.d. [c.1713]
Date1713 (c)
Extent2 ff
Content DescriptionLays a short account of his case before Edlin, in order to counteract the words of those who have sought to 'misrepresent and injure' him; says that the objection against him is that he preached 'practical sermons' on public days without a 'particular application to the occasion of the day'; admits that whilst he did do this, no-one complained on the day (30 Jan. 1912/3); says that whilst he prefers to abstain from politics, he has since preached without giving offence; says that he has not visited the Governor because he had no express reason to do so; is surprised that complaints were made that a friend dined with him on certain occasions during the winter.
