Very tidy copy of a wonderful read. Selina, Countess of Huntingdon quite literally underwrote a significant amount of the finances of the Great Awakening. She paid for and hosted the revivalists' College on her estate, hired chaplains to sustain them, paid preachers, established a "Connexion" and network, built chapels, and more. And in doing so she all be exhausted her vast estate.
This is in addition to the prayer, moral, and I would even say pastoral support she gave to friends like George Whitefield, the Wesleys, James Hervey, and more.
