The Founders of Canterbury

London Bridge Station, Wednesday, 3rd October, 1849

London Bridge Station, Wednesday, 3rd October, 1849.

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.
