The Founders of Canterbury
London Bridge Station, Wednesday, 3rd October, 1849
My Dear Godley,
—Short of time—on the way to Gravesend to take leave of emigrants by Berkshire, I can only page 116return Goulburn's letter with one remark. Wynter is obeying the calls of duty—duty to his wife and her family: and he would obey the calls of a higher duty if they were addrcssed to him by a superior in the Church as S. Oxon. could do it. I am sure that he would be delighted at a pressure that would enable him to overcome the Lyalls.
With respect to yourself, you will be getting ready for departure somewhere; so ready as to be able to take which direction you please at the end of the month. Don't go into November, but throw over everything rather than forego a cure, which is certain if you can get rest and good air in time.
I was very much pleased with McGreachy, a kind, sensible, and decided man, with, I imagine, a very good judgement: and with an expression of features speaking his character.
