The Founders of Canterbury
Lord Lyttelton.Reigate, Sunday night, 7th April
My Dear Lord,
—In pursuance of your Lordship's letter, I have sent to Mr. J. A. Smith a copy of the form of guarantee which is enclosed.page 250
It is in strict agreement with the Resolution passed by the Company, and with the Memorandum in Mr. Smith's writing which I handed to you at Charing Cross, and of which I enclose a copy.
I understand from Mr. FitzGerald that the guarantee is now much objected to by some of Godley's friends. They cannot object to it more than I did until after it was entertained: but if their objections should now prevail, I am persuaded that the Company will not give way (nor can I consistently now ask them to do so); and that the Association will practically come to an end on Tuesday next.
I have the honor to remain
Your faithful servant,
E. G. Wakefield.
