The Founders of Canterbury
Henry Sewell, Esq., Newport, Isle of Wight. — Reigate, 7th July, 1850
Reigate, 7th July, 1850.
My Dear Mr. Sewell,
—I have had a long talk with Lord Lyttelton and Sir Walter James about a responsible official organ; and I ventured to suggest the expediency of their endeavouring to induce you to stop for six months, and take the part of Deputy Chairman of Committee of Management.
Lord L. will write to you; but as he is overworked, and time presses more than he is aware of, I am most desirous that you should be on the spot immediately. So, I trust you will come to Town to see me as soon as possible.
Very truly yours,
E. G. Wakefield.
