The Founders of Canterbury

Lord Lyttelton

Lord Lyttelton.

London, 23rd July, 1850.

My Dear Lord,

—As Mr. Sewell is writing to you, I need only say, in acknowledging the receipt of your letter, that I think his keenness in foreseeing difficulties is accompanied by much courage in dealing with them. And though he is unsanguine, I fancy that he is very tenacious of his purpose, and far from being inclined to despond.

His presence here in your Lordship's absence is an indescribable comfort to my mind.
