The Founders of Canterbury
Charles Clifford, Esq., 22, Baker-street, London. — Reigate, 21st July, 1849
Reigate, 21st July, 1849.
My Dear Sir,
—I shall be at home next Thursday and Friday, and delighted to see you on either day.
P.S.—I think you would do well to see both Hawes and Lord Grey. By seeing both—Hawes first—you will find out more of the real truth than by seeing only Hawes. I consider all that Hawes says as mere dodging: but by comparing that with Grey's supercilious plain-speaking, you may find out page 100what is really intended. The pain of an interview with Grey, you must consider as nauseous medicine, taken for the good of the colony.
