TitleLetter from Dr William Hoffmann, Basel
Extent1 item
Date1847
DescriptionDated 9 July. Commiserates with Venn on his child's illness; Mrs Hoffmann after five months illness died 14 April. Fjellstedt, who had been working temporarily as their Travelling Secretary, transferred himself to the Swedish Missionary Society (mainly because he is Swedish), when it was founded two years ago; at that point Basel stopped paying him his allowances having warned him not to join the new society as it appeared unlikely to last; it has now foundered and Fjellstedt wishes to be taken on again either by CMS or Basel; explains financial difficulties of this as Fjellstedt has a large family; proposes they might share the costs.
