The Founders of Canterbury
Reigate, 11th December, 1849
My Dear Rintoul,
—The meeting does hold good for Saturday. Molesworth and Adderley are engaged, and Baring almost.
Adderley and Molesworth will come down by the 10.30 train, with a view to early work: Adderley wanting to go back in the evening. So pray come as soon as yon can. Their coming so much before you can, will give me the opportunity of bringing them up to our mark by the time you appear.
Nothing from Godley yet. My son will leave town tonight, with a view to the ship's sailing to-morrow with this fine wind.
I quite agree about Grodley, and will make it modest.
