The Founders of Canterbury
John Simeon, Esq., M.P., 4, Eaton Place West. Reigate, 8th February, 1850
Dear Mr. Simeon,
—Being very desirous of seeing you and other friends of Godley to-morrow if possible (in consequence of the retirement of Captain Bellairs, which I deem "a heavy blow and great discouragement," considering when it takes place) I purpose going to Charing Cross at half-past twelve, and trust that it may be in your power to meet me. If you could get Mr. Wynne and Mr. Cocks to do so likewise, it would be a satisfaction. I will endeavour to bring Adderley, with whom I am going to breakfast at Sir Wm. Molesworth's.
Ever sincerely yours,
E. G. Wakefield.
