Charles Wesley Mentioned in Diary

The Trustees’ appointment of Charles Wesley as Secretary of Indian Affairs apparently had a double purpose. As the Earl of Egmont noted in his diary:

“He [Charles Wesley] being a very religious man and good scholar, will take orders, and occasionally officiate in the church till we can get a settled minister in our new Colony.”
