The Founders of Canterbury
Reigate, 27th September, 1849
My Dear, John Hutt,
—The state of the Canterbury affair and Grodley's case, together with my own incapacity for work anywhere but at home, compel me to beg that you will manage to come here early on Monday next. I write to Godley, begging him to meet you. By Mr. Adderley's desire, I write to his brother-in-law, Mr. McGeachy, requesting him to come here on Tuesday morning. It is most desirable that you should sleep here on Monday. We must try to knock off the whole business in those two days—Monday and Tuesday.
Pray come. It will be all over with the Canterbury affair unless somebody go to work; and Adderley leaves it to you and me as respects the settlement of questions.
