The introduction explains that an earlier extract (WM3/1/12d/6) 'had been inserted in several of the most popular Magazines', and that it had been included in the Wesleyan Methodist Magazine chiefly because of its usefulness in confounding infidels. Observes: 'we, of course, could not be reasonably understood to make ourselves responsible for its correctness. We stated it, as we found it in other publications; and gave the name of the narrator'. (325) The letter by W. D. disputes the claims of the earlier extract, suggesting an alternative explanation of the phenomena observed.
