Discussion with John Wesley

Savannah bailiff Thomas Causton had a very trying position. In addition to dealing with various disagreements among settlers, he received the following complaint as noted in his diary for this day:

“… Mr. Wesley lately acquainted me that there were Several Deists in the place, & now gave me a long account of a discourse between him & Dr. Garratt: I told him I did not doubt but he would be able to Set people right in these matters, & that I should be always ready to give the assistance of a Civil magistrate in discountenancing & punishing bad morals whenever any particular Fact should make it necessary… .”
