The Founders of Canterbury

Redhill, 6th May, 1848

Redhill, 6th May, 1848.

My Dear Godley,

—There lives at Windsor, one of the Naval Knights, a Mr. Henslow, whose acquaintance I made at Malvern, and who is not unlikely to be a Canterbury colonist. He would be a very valuable one. He was invalided as a Navy Lieutenant by an act of heroism, but was then an officer of great promise. He is a nephew of Professor Henslow, of Cambridge, and a most honorable useful person. I have suggested that he should put himself into direct communication with you, though he is far from having made up his mind to emigrate. His object is to learn all about it. He has read much on New Zealand, and is a good Churchman. It will be all right about the Charter for Canterbury, with Aglionby, who came here yesterday. I shall send the Book of Charters to 41, Charing Cross, for you to-morrow.
