Stephens Expressed Displeasure with Wesley

Although John Wesley has already left Georgia, William Stephens still found reason to be unhappy with the work he had done in the colony, as Stephens noted in his journal:

“…Mr. Whitfield sent me the Register, which , I had been asking for a little while since, that was left by Mr. Wesley, and which he told me was in Mr. Causton’s Hands: And instead of finding it contain an Ac- count of the Births, and Burials, &c. I was surprised to see it filled with the Names of Communicants at the Sacrament, where their Number and Day of receiving was carefully preserved; which I took Notice was generally the same Number and Persons; but what Use Mr. Wesley proposed to make of it, I cannot pretend to judge, neither could I think it worth my copying.”
