John Wesley on Leaving Georgia

After an unhappy experience in Georgia, John Wesley sailed for Charleston headed for England. In today’s entry in his diary, he recorded:

“Being now only a prisoner at large, in a place where … every day would give fresh opportunity to procure evidence of words I never said, and actions I never did, … I shook off the dust of my feet, and left Georgia, after having preached the gospel there, … not as I ought, but as I was able, one year and nearly nine months.”
