The Founders of Canterbury

John Simeon, Esq., M.P. Reigate, Monday night, 8th April

John Simeon, Esq., M.P. Reigate, Monday night, 8th April.

My Dear Mr. Simeon,

—With reference to the Canterbury crisis to-morrow (which wilh determine whether or not the undertaking proceeds), I am very desirous of saying some things to those who take the deepest interest, which I cannot say to Lord Lyttelton because I am so much a stranger to him; and I therefore beg that you will let me say them to you. They consist mainly of suggestions as to what ought to be done instantly in order to make success certain. I can see the way to complete success; but all depends on vigorous and prompt action. My time is so engaged to-morrow as the medium of communications between Association and Company, that I cannot offer to go to your house: but I shall be at the Colonists' Rooms at eleven o'clock, and should be very glad indeed to see you before you meet Lord Lyttelton at Charing Cross.
