A PLAIN ACCOUNT
OF
THE PEOPLE CALLED METHODISTS

IN A LETTER TO THE
REVEREND MR. PERRONET,VICAR OF SHOREHAM, IN KENT.

Written in the year 1748.

Reverend And Dear Sir,

1. Some time since, you desired an account of the whole economy of the people commonly called Methodists, And you received a true, (as far as it went,) but not a full, account. To supply what I think was wanting in that, I send you this account, that you may know, not only their practice on every head, but likewise the reasons whereon it is grounded, the occasion of every step they have taken, and the advantages reaped thereby.

2. But I must premise, that as they had not the least expectation, at first, of any thing like what has since followed, so they had no previous design or plan at all; but every thing arose just as the occasion offered. They saw or felt some impending or pressing evil, or some good end necessary to be pursued. And many times they fell unawares on the very thing which secured the good, or removed the evil. At other times, they consulted on the most probable means, following only common sense and Scripture: Though they generally found, in looking back, something in Christian antiquity likewise, very nearly parallel thereto.
