Reverend Thomas Stringfield wrote this letter to the Reverend J. C. Bingham and Dr. Noah Levings from Bean's Station (Grainger County) Tennessee on April 19, 1846. In it, he reports on his activities as an itinerant Methodist preacher in East Tennessee and Western North Carolina, including the sermons he has preached, the Bible Societies he has founded, and the Bibles he has distributed in such places as Bean's Station (Tennessee), Asheville (North Carolina), and Jonesboro (Tennessee).
William Jones (nephew of Samuel Roberts) collected these papers. He and Richard Roberts were the trustees of Samuel Roberts' will and were entrusted with the responsibility of seeing the land claims through to resolution. Included are copies of documents dealing with original land purchases from E. D. Saxton, maps showing the locations of the purchased tracts, testimonies of William and Richard Edward Jones, and brief accounts of the history of the Welsh Colony written by William Jones.
