The Founders of Canterbury

Reigate, 13th July, 1850.

My Dear FitzGerald,

—Sorry you can't come. This mess about the Bishopric is a good illustration of the need of a circumspect man of business, officially responsible.

But my object in writing is to pray you will get some people (as many as you can) to join Adderley's dinner on Wednesday next. He talks of only thirty. If it be so, it will be called a proof of the downfall of the Society for the Reform, &c. If I were well some more should be got; but I cannot exert myself in this hot weather.
