Correspondence and Strictures.
I have been informed by members of my congregation that you have, upon more than one occasion, attempted to lead them away from their "first love," and the church of their fathers, by offering your ministration to them unasked.
Allow me to request that you will, in future, refrain from thus interfering with the members of the Church, who have no wish to change "the faith once delivered to the saints" for a new one. They are content to be saved in the way the Bible points out; be you content also to let them so be saved.
Your obedient servant,
C. H. S. Nicholls,Incumbent of Christ Church.
Mr. Harding,Wesleyan Minister, Wanganui.
