The Founders of Canterbury

To the Same

To the Same.

Reigate, 17th October, 1849.

My Dear Sir,

—I see by the Times to-day that Lord Grey gives way about the Cape.

Of course he will answer your last letter to that effect: and of course also, I hope, you will send the four letters to the Chronicle for immediate publication. It is important that the correspondence should be published Whilst the subject is remembered—which it will not be ten days hence.

If you have not, because you will not be yourself, the leader and organizer of the Colonial Reformers, would Mr. Lucas do for subordinate organizer? Prom his writings and what I hear, he is sensible and clever: and he takes much interest in the subject. Unless some one person make this organization his sole business, nothing good will come of your suggestion: it will expire for want of practical exertion. The work might, ere long, be personally advantageous to a gentleman like Mr. Lucas, if he is ambitious.
