The Founders of Canterbury

Reigate, 21st February, 1850

Reigate, 21st February, 1850.

My Dear FitzGerald,

—I am worn out to-day, and cannot answer your letter. Nor indeed have I any power to answer its main question. But I may say that I think you have not been made aware of the part that Bellairs was to have taken in the Canterbury affair. It is a part for which only a man of some considerable fortune is qualified. Bellairs and his father together (this in strict confidence) would have taken some £70,000 to the colony. But I must not write more to-day. We will talk on the matter.
