The Founders of Canterbury

Reigate, 7th February, 1850

Reigate, 7th February, 1850.

My Dear Wynter,

—I give it up finally. But, therefore, you will, I am sure, admit that we have a claim on you to assist in getting a good man—preventing the choice of a bad one, of which last there is danger. I heard of a good one yesterday; a brother of Lord Hardwicke's, who has a living at Birmingham; and I am told that Lord Lyttelton has one in his eye, also a person of high connexions. But unless there be active doing at once about a good man, some unfit person will probably get a footing that may enable him to carry the post by storm. One of this sort, who is just made for such an enterprise, is hard at work. So, I purpose going to see page 213you this morning to talk over the matter. And pray, in order to make me comfortable in your house, assure Mrs. Wynter that I have entirely given up the hope of her being persuaded to relent.

Ever yours most truly,

E. Gl Wakefield.
