This chapter links Hannah More to her friends in the Evangelical Clapham Sect, notably William Wilberforce, Henry Thornton, Zachary Macaulay, and James Stephen. The foundation of the Church Missionary Society shows how the Clapham sect was involving itself in the spread of Christianity overseas. More was friendly with one of the Clapham sect wives, Marianne Thornton, née Sykes, but never became close to Barbara Wilberforce, née Spooner. She was for a while greatly distressed when her protégée, the Bristol schoolteacher, Selina Mills, became engaged to Zachary Macaulay, the governor of Sierra Leone. In 1798 the Cheap Repository was wound up, but not until William Cobbett had circulated them in Philadelphia.
