The Founders of Canterbury

Reigate, 26th September, 1849

Reigate, 26th September, 1849.

My Dear Godley,

—After reflection, Wynter declines even to consider further. He is "not man enough" for a work involving such important consequences for the Church. Still, I am sure that he declines with reluctance, and that he would be the very man.

Will you ask Hinds if he knows of the fit man—not a propagandist, but a planting Bishop, a true colonizer for the Church?

I had a long talk with Aglionby to-day, and prepared him for the certainty of your leaving England nest month, and the possibility of your being indueed, if Mrs. Grodley's objections could be overcome, to prefer New Zealand to Naples. He is now quite awake to the crisis for Association and Company, and sees the great importance to both of your being led to adopt the suggestion of Adderley's letter—which I return.
