The Founders of Canterbury

(Private.) W. G. Brittan, Esq. Reigate, 9th April, 1850

(Private.) W. G. Brittan, Esq. Reigate, 9th April, 1850.

My Dear Mr. Brittan,

—Lest in the hurry you might not hear it so soon otherwise, I write to say that the guarantee has been accepted by the Company; and that as soon as the Government consents (probably in a day or two) the mischievous contingency will be at an end.

Please tell Chapman. The work was not over till five o'clock in the City; and I was too much beat to think of any whither but home.

Ever yours truly,

E. G. Wakefield.
