The Founders of Canterbury
Reigate, 19th November, 1849
My Dear Godley,
—I have seen Wynter to-day.
The result is that he wishes me to beg that you will propose him as a member of the Association and the Managing Committee.
He will attend the Committee meetings, and work as hard as he can.
He yielded to my urgent entreaty that he would write and publish on the subject. He will address himself to churchmen, and will, I doubt not, do it capitally. He has leisure, knowledge, zeal, sense, and courage; and he writes very well
I hope you may get him elected immediately.
P.S.—I trust the Association will proceed with the Bishopric matter before you leave. It seems to me that they have only to address Lord Grey officially proposing, as from themselves, the very thing to which, by Lord Courtenay's report, Lord Grey says he will consent.
