The Founders of Canterbury
Reigate, 20th November, 1849
My Dear Godley,
—The enclosed is interesting, but very natural, I think, supposing the writer to have originality of character. It would be a happy move for him, affecting his whole life for good.
I trust you will come with Adderley. If you easily can, will you bring a copy of yesterday's Chronicle, which I have been unable to buy at the Station.
If Adderley can really work his idea of a Colonial Reform Association, Lord Grey will not meet Parliament as Minister, and a Bill will be carried for all we want. I say this advisedly on special, but very confidential information.
