Randerson Archive, Wesleyan Class Tickets RAN

Dated 1740-1977

Extent: 1 box

Description
This collection contains a large number of Wesleyan class tickets. A Wesleyan Class was a group of up to twelve worshippers, who would meet together for prayer and bible study. The Class Leader was often responsible for hosting this group, and gave out class tickets, or membership cards to members of their class. These tickets could be withheld from those unworthy of being called Methodists. These volumes contain an artifically accumulated collection, of British and some American class tickets, most mounted in albums but some loose.
