The Founders of Canterbury
Mr. Bowler. Cockspur Street, 22nd August, 1850
—The only difficulty about getting the whole emigration matter placed under your sole direction, is that you have let FitzGerald expect that you would help him as a helper. As long as he hopes that you may undertake the work under him or subject to his interference, he will not page 314give it quite up: but when he finds that you will not undertake less than the whole—power, responsibility and all—he will be glad to give up altogether: and this will be done to-morrow if you stand firm.
