The Founders of Canterbury
Reigate, 9th January, 1850
My Dear FitzGerald,
—I have found and now inclose all the papers which were mislaid through my fault.
The proposed address to the Colonists is a Profession of page 193Faith by the Society. Such a document is the most important that they could issue; and the preparation of it requires counsel, and the greatest care. Pray consult Rintoul on this head. I am sure that it would be fearful to send this letter without consulting the assembled Council: and I think that a Profession of Faith could be drawn up in a better form That done, the letters to colonies might be very short.
