The Founders of Canterbury

F. A. McGeachy, Esq. Reigate, 8th January, 1850

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.
