The Founders of Canterbury
Reigate, 18th January, 1850
My Dear Rintoul,
—The facts are safe. I know the danger, and have been on my guard.
It is a sad pity that the Sidney Stephen appointment should not be noticed in this Spectator. It would dumb-found Downing Street and Broad Street Buildings.
I will send a Postcript notice of the rumours by the train which leaves Reigate at 12.53.
