45 Whiteﬁeld had not yet connected ‘free grace’ to Calvinistic doctrines as he would do later. His likely source was Henry, who used the phrase periodically in his commentary. Anglican authors that Whiteﬁeld read also used the phrase but less often. 46 Religious Society, 7, 25. On the Anglican view of baptismal vows, see William Beveridge, ‘The Church Catechism Explained’, in The Theological Works of William Beveridge, vol. 8 (Oxford, 1846). 47 Religious Society, 8, 12, 17. It should be remembered that Whiteﬁeld preached this sermon to Anglican audiences, so its synergism should not surprise us.
In 1751 a letter-writer discussed the Wesleyan/Calvinist conﬂict and said that it is ‘full time to see who is on the Lord’s side . . and there is great difﬁcultys to know; for one crys here[’s] Christ the other says there[’]s Christ & very little the Lord knows of Christ on either side. ’57 The truly startling fact about this letter is its author: Mrs George Whiteﬁeld. ‘How mistaken is the World in the opinion it forms of my being rich,’ wrote Whiteﬁeld in 1745. Nearly a quarter-century later he was still saying it, in an astonishing parting sermon at his London Tabernacle as he set out on his fateful ﬁnal voyage to America: ‘The world thinks I am very rich .

Surely that will not do; I would have one that is full of faith and the Holy Ghost . . Such a one would help, and not retard me in my dear Lord’s work . . I hang upon my Jesus . . he daily . . 24 In fact, she soon married a Fetter Lane Moravian. His bitter dismissal of Elizabeth Delamotte’s Christian commitment, only then to suppose that he would marry her, must place a question mark around Whiteﬁeld’s integrity.
