The Founders of Canterbury

Reigate, Saturday night

Reigate, Saturday night.

Dear Mr. Jackson,

—Yon have, I conclude, received the Ipswich Journal, with the report of your speech; and a miserable report it is. Indeed, it is to me, having heard the speech, a report of something else than what you said: and the worst of it is, that the best parts are the most spoiled. My object, therefore, in writing to you, is to afford any aid that may be in my power towards making a good report. Your memory may, I trust, have enabled you to record the most important passages: but as I recollect them almost verbatim, I have thought it worth while to say this, in case you should be aware of any deficiency in your own report which I might be able to supply.
