Letter from Lady Huntingdon to Thomas Haweis, September 2, 1790
Lady Huntingdon’s spiritual ambitions were far-reaching. In 1768 she founded a college for the training of preachers near Trafeca, Wales. This letter written during the final year of her life expresses the Countess’s vision for global missionary outreach.
It is now the time of the travelling fund, the very & vast importance of the work for the South Seas, New Brunswick, America & perhaps Virginia with the vast spread of the gospel among the very poor in various places of such consequence.
