John Charlesworth
1806 ALS by English Abolitionist John Charlesworth to Poet, Essayist and Hymn-Writer Henry Kirke White.
[Clapham, Surrey {England}, September 24, 1806]. [3]pp. 4to. Bifolium with integral address leaf. Postmarks. Folds; old, neat mends at wax seal and hinge, the seal covers the last few letters of the signature; very good.

Abolitionist and Anglican clergyman John Charlesworth (1782–1864) plans the upcoming visit to his home by poet Henry Kirke White (1785–1806). The letter is approximately 375 words. In part:

“The Autumn is fast drawing to a close and every day marks the Approach of Winter nearer, but as the beauties of the Country are not yet quite gone let me prevail upon you to pay your visit first to me; you will then enjoy the Country better than you wd. afterwards, whereas on the other hand London if you mean to be there at all, will be improving whilst the Country is declining.”

A trained surgeon, and later an Anglican clergyman—part of the “Clapham Sect,” Charlesworth was an intimate friend of Thomas Clarkson and William Wilberforce.

At the time of this letter, White was a scholarship student at Cambridge. Ill with consumption, he died just over three weeks later.

See Kirke’s letters to John Charlesworth in Poetical Works and Remains of Henry Kirke White (London, 1860), passim, particularly his letter of September 22, 1806 to which the present letter is a reply.
