In Their Own Words

December 20, 1738

Trustees Agreed to Whitefield’s Requests

In London, the Georgia Trustees acted on George Whitefield’s list of conditions for returning to Georgia as Anglican minister, as recorded in the diary of the Earl of Egmont:

“… A proposal containing sundry propositions made to the Trustees by Mr. Whitfeild for advancing the religious concerns of the Colony was read, and in the main agreed to. We also agreed to give him, as he desired, a commission to collect money for building a church for the Saltsburgers at Ebenezer.”
