The Founders of Canterbury

Reigate, 7th April, 1850

Reigate, 7th April, 1850.

My Dear J. A. Smith,

—Harrington's official letter to the Association differs from your brief memorandum, which I gave to Lord Lyttelton at Charing Cross; as you will see by comparing it with the enclosed copy of your Mem.

Your Mem. appears to me to be perfect: and, at any rate, it is what your deputation was told should, if possible, be done. I have therefore taken it (together with the Resolution passed by the Company) as the basis of a form of guarantee which Lord Lyttelton has begged that I will concoct with you, and have ready by Tuesday.

I enclose a copy, and send one to him at Brighton.

If both sides approve of this form, Harrington's letter will have to be altered so as to agree with it.
