The Founders of Canterbury

Reigate, Saturday Morning

Reigate, Saturday Morning.

My Dear FitzGerald,

—I am worn out at the end of this week, and have not strength to write about your new project. As we cannot meet immediately,. however, I will tell you now what I intended to say yesterday if you could have met me at Charing Cross, whither I went in quest of information on the subject—that I believe the Canterbury Committee have offered the post of Leader of the Colonist Body to more than one person for his consideration. I do not know to whom; but I do know that they desire to find somebody resembling Bellairs as respects property and the sacrifice which, in the common view, he would make by emigrating.

I dare not seem to lecture you; but your sudden resolve to give up Colonial Eeform for emigration any how, has disturbed and fretted me on your account.

Pray come on Tuesday.

Ever yours,

E. G. Wakefield.
