FAMOUS MEN: William Morley Punshon (1824-1881) English Nonconformist Minister, President of the Methodist Conference 1874-75. A fine L.S., W. Morley Punshon, two pages, 4to, Camborne, 30th July 1874, to Rev. Samuel Romilly Hall, on the printed stationery of the Wesleyan Methodist Conference. Punshon expresses, on behalf of the members of the conference, the sincere sorrow felt at Hall's inability to attend and continues 'Your brethren remember without ceasing your work of faith and labour of love in connection with our Itinerant Ministry, as also the ability and zeal with which you have discharged high official duties. The Conference renews to you its assurance of deep sympathy; and fervently prays that, in your retirement, the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ may be exceeding abundant toward you, and that, according to His glorious power, you may be strengthened unto all patience and long-suffering, with joyfulness'. Signed by Punshon in his capacity as President and countersigned by Gervase Smith (1821-1882, Wesleyan Minister, President of the Methodist Conference 1875-76) in his capacity as Secretary; Spencer Timothy Hall (1812-1885) English Mesmerist & Writer. A.L.S., Spencer T. Hall, four pages, 4to, Stonefield Street, Cloudesley Square, 3rd December 1847, to J. H. Beale ('My dear Friend'). Hall informs his correspondent that he is unwell ('and in a very excited state of mind from domestic and other causes') although continues to acknowledge their letter and offers his warm sympathy, however adding 'It does not appear to me now how I can be of any use to you; - but if any thing turns up you will be in my mind. Nearly all the advocates of our cause are gratuitous ones, and many of them very able, which makes it difficult for paid ones to get engagements' and advising 'I do not think you can do better than get a Mechanics' Institute connexion: for although they pay but little, that little is pretty certain. At the same time keep on the look-out for advantages. The fact is, there is too much brains in the market, at present, for the demand. Anything pays better than sound intellectual merchandise: but perhaps after all this is right. The things of the spirit should be exchanged for that which is spiritual, and not for dross - which in this grovelling age would soon be the payment for them if a market could be found'. In concluding Hall refers to having been in Nottingham and Sutton the previous week ('and have got the heart-ache') and asks to be remembered to his correspondent's lady and friends. A small spindle hole appears to the upper left corner and with some light overall creasing and minor age wear to Hall's letter, about VG, 2 Samuel Romilly Hall (1812-1876) British Methodist Preacher, President of the Methodist Conference 1868-69.
