From the Minutes of the Trustees Dec 7, 1737

Dec. 7, 1737. — Several letters were read from Mr. Williamson at Savannah,
complaining of the Rev. John Wesley having refused the Sacrament to his wife,
Mrs. Sophia Williamson, with affidavit of latter thereupon, and two presentments
of thu Grand Jury of the Rev. John Wesley for said refusal, and for several other
facts laid to his charge.
Ordered : That copies of said letters and affidavit be sent over to the Rev. Mr.
John Wesley, desiring him to return his answers to the same as soon as possible :
and that a letter be sent to Mr. Williamson to acquaint him of said copies being
sent to Mr. Wesley, and that, if he has anything new to lay before the Trustees,
he should show it first to Mr. VVesley, and then send it over to them ; and that
the Trustees think he should not have made his application to the world, by advertising
his complaints, before he had acquainted the Trustees with them.
