The Founders of Canterbury

Reigate, 27th September, 1849

Reigate, 27th September, 1849.

My Dear Godley,

—I have a letter from Adderley. In consequence I write to Mr. McGreachy, requesting him to come here on Tuesday next early; also to John Hutt, begging him to meet you here very early on Monday, and sleep here, so as to meet McGreachy on Tuesday; also, now to you, begging that you will come early on Monday, for, first, some confidential talk with me alone, and then discussion with Hutt and me on public matters which require settlement, but not to sleep here—only to spend the greater part of the day.

I write to Adderley saying that his suggestions shall be adopted, but that unless the main points (especially as regards your mission) be settled next week, it will be too late.

I sent back Lord Lyttelton's letter by mistake, instead of Goulburn's, which is here.
