The Founders of Canterbury

F. A. McGeachy, Esq. Reigate, 9th January, 1850

F. A. McGeachy, Esq. Reigate, 9th January, 1850.

Dear Sir,

— I now learn that Lord Grey has officially sanctioned the Association's proposal of his own suggestion to them. So Canterbury may go to work; and hard work it must be to have effect in the short time allowed.

After more reflection on Rintoul's letter, I come to the opinion that the most useful step which the Colonial Reform Society could take, both for itself and for the cause, would be to issue a Profession of Faith, or Declaration of Principles and Objects, just before the meeting of Parliament. But for that purpose deliberate counsel, by those members of the Council who are in earnest, is indispensable.
