Dear Carole, have you done any more work on Nayler? I have really mixed feelings about the new Neelon book. On the one hand it filled some important gaps for me in terms of context and pre-Quaker life but I found the treatment of Bristol and 'the women' frustratingly predictable (a largely uncritical acceptance of the Foxite account). I also disagree with Neelon about Nayler's post-Bristol position. I just don't see him as a spiritual individualist. I find your perspective much more interesting. Blessings, Stuart.
I'd like to invite you and Bryan to an after party/dinner that evening, if you're up for it. We did that a couple times before, when Brian Drayton and before that Peggy Senger Parsons and Marge Abbott spoke, and it was both fun and an Opportunity. I will call Bryan and talk to him about it.
Did you know that QuakerQuaker is 100% reader supported? Our costs run to about $50/month. If you think this kind of outreach and conversation is important, please support it with a monthly subscription or one-time gift.
