The Founders of Canterbury

C. B. Adderley, Esq. Reigate, 18th December, 1849

C. B. Adderley, Esq. Reigate, 18th December, 1849.

My Dear Sir,

—On reading over the proof, I am struck with the inadequacy and weakness of the word "ineon-page 170venience" in the second line of the second paragraph. If this were the only relief sought, it would be hardly worth while to form a Society. For "inconvenience," I should like to substitute "grievous and manifold evils," or some such expression. But there will be time enough for this when the final revise of the prospectus shall be made for publication.

I am very much pleased with Godley's letter, which Rintoul and I doctored a little, but only a little.

Your letter in the Times yesterday is good and useful. The Cape people are being run down in opinion here, because their case is not known. I feared as much, you will recollect, long ago.

Query "great and manifold evils."
