Letter from Lady Huntingdon to Anne Grinfield, January 8, 1757
Even though she could have served the Methodist movement as a lay preacher, Lady Huntingdon chose to express her faith in more subtle ways. As a member of the aristocracy, she used her organizational skills, personal connections, and financial resources to support many preaching and benevolent ministries. Anne Grinfield (1709–1791), the recipient of this letter, was Lady of the Bedchamber to King George II's two daughters, Princesses Amelia and Caroline. Through correspondence Lady Huntingdon encouraged Grinfield to bear a Methodist witness at Court.
