Stephens Heard of Wesley’s Intent to Leave

William Stephens recorded in his journal his “little” surprise at hearing that John Wesley would soon be leaving Georgia to return to England:

“Mr. Jones the Surveyor being come to Town again, I went with him to see the five Acre Lot, where I purposed at present to employ what Hands I had ; and as it was run out before, he readily shewed me the Bounds, and renewed the Marks in each Line, which had been formerly made. At my return to Town, I was a little surprised to hear that Mr. Wesley had fix’d up a public Advertisement signifying his Intent of going soon for England.”
