The Founders of Canterbury
F. A. McGeachy, Esq. Reigate, 8th January, 1850
My Dear Sir,
—In emergencies one can't afford to be particular. So I make bold to send you a letter from Rintoul, which please to return to me. Its operation on me is like spurring the flanks of a broken-winded horse. It frets me into illness. I am persuaded that if Mr. Adderley do not make a business of his Society, and in time, it will break down, and ruin him as a politician, besides deeply injuring the cause.
I have not the face to send him Rintoul's letter, though I would if I dared.
Very sincerely yours,
E. G. Wakefield.
