A Letter from James Renwick to the Honourable Society of Strangers at Leeuwarden, 13 November, 1683 #History #Scotland

On 13 November, 1683, James Renwick wrote to a small prayer society he had met in Leeuwarden in the United Provinces before he returned to Scotland. It was probably sent with letter XXVII to Robert Hamilton, as he was a member of that society. It is printed as Letter Number XXVI in Carslaw, Life and Letters, 76-9.

Two weeks later, Michael Shields would write on behalf of the United Societies’s twelfth convention to the same prayer society. See Letter from Michael Shields to Society in Leewarden, Friesland. 28th November 1683. (Shields, Faithful Contendings Displayed, 117-19.)
