John Hutt, Esq. Reigate, 27th February, 1850.

My dear Hutt.,

—I am delighted to find that Wynter has proposed Mr. Maddock. Of course he did not do so without feeling sure that if the offer were made it would be accepted. Wynter, to-day, gave me a full and particular account of the Sector of Kington; and I have made some inquiries in another quarter, with respect to disposition, habits, and manners. The result of all is a confident hope that Mr. Maddock is more fit than there is much chance of any other person being whom you are likely to find in time. I asked Wynter to write down two or three things which he told me; and here is the paper. My own channel of inquiry was as good as can be for getting at the truth. Considering Mr. Maddock's position and connexions (a great point), we must attribute his readiness to be enlisted at once to Wynter's persuasions. He says that Maddock will be as much of a Church-colonizing Bishop as he should have been himself.
