Josiah Pratt was the first son and successor of his father, Josiah Pratt (1768-1844), who was chosen by parishioners to lead St. Stephen's church. No additional information could be found about the younger Pratt. His father, however, was known as an evangelical divine. The senior Josiah Pratt helped form the British and Foreign Bible Society as well as the Church Pastoral Aid Society.
This collection consists of a letter dated September 20, 1854 from Pratt's sister, Marianne Kempthorne in Auckland, New Zealand. The letter is in regard to their father's death in 1844 and the division of his assets.
