The Founders of Canterbury

Reigate, 14th November, 1849

Reigate, 14th November, 1849.

Dear J. A. Smith,

—Aglionby showed me a letter which he sends to you to day. It would indeed be well if you could attend the proposed conference; for upon its result will depend the going on or going off of the Canterbury affair. But it is still more desirable that other questions, in which the Canterbury people have no interest, should be discussed in friendly confidence by those who alone can solve them in a manner to prevent the discreditable break-up of the Company. I have proposed this before, and do it again though your answer is far from encouraging, in order that nothing that is in my power may be neglected.

Yours very truly,

E. G. Wakefield.
