The Founders of Canterbury
John Hutt, Esq. Reigate, 10th December, 1849
My Dear Hutt,
—I trust that in no event will you be induced to give up. That may be just what some people want. If they could disgust the Association, and get rid of it, they would have the land for Broad Street Buildings or Park Street to sell. If they stop you, stop; but don't let go. If they can stop you, so you can stop them. None of them will long have the power to stop anything colonial.
Practically, Grrey's pedantic veto on the 3rd clause is of little importance. At any rate, nearly all, if not all, purchasers will be members of the Church.
