Letter of James Renwick to Henry Jenkinson and Society people in Newcastle of 3 October, 1682.

The following letter was sent by James Renwick, the clerk the United Societies, to Mr Henry Jenkinson and others in a prayer society in Newcastle, England.

It threatened the Newcastle society with expulsion from the Societies’ convention and correspondence for its links with two preachers, John Hepburn and James Welsh, and Andrew Young.

It was drafted on the same day as Renwick wrote to Robert Hamilton and a week before the Societies’ fifth convention.

Renwick’s letter to Jenkinson is printed in Carslaw (ed.), Life and Letters, 21-24.
