The Founders of Canterbury
Reigate, 21st January, 1850
—I send the rest of Mr. Wynter's M.S. Don't forget duplicate proofs, to him, at Gatton Tower, and to me. It is most desirable that the Tract should be got on so as to be sent to Birmingham on Monday next at latest: for a public meeting will be held there next day, on the very subject of it, Lord Lyttelton in the chair: and he would surely mention the Tract if he had it in time. Copies should be sent as they come out of the press to him, to C. B. Adderley, Esq., M.P., Hams Hall, Coleshill; to Mr. Garbett, Rural Dean of Birmingham (I believe, but you will find his proper title); and to Captain Tindal, Branch Bank of England, Birmingham (to the last, half-a-dozen copies).
The first number of the "Canterbury Papers" would surely sell at the public meeting at Birmingham on Tuesday. There ought to be a man at the door with a placard and copies for sale. But my brother, who is to be there, will manage all this.
You ought in the first number to request that persons wishing to receive future numbers will order them.
