The Founders of Canterbury

The Bishop of Norwich

The Bishop of Norwich.

Reigate, 21st October, 1850.

My Dear Lord,

—The enclosed extract from a sort of Letter-Journal which I keep for Mr. Godley's information and send, to him from time to time, explains itself so fully, that I have only to request that you will be so good as to read it.

A copy is sent by this post to Lord Lyttelton.

Neither from yourself as the only Bishop in the Ecclesiastical Committee, nor from him whose station, character, and chairmanship make him very responsible to the public, did I feel justified in any longer withholding the impressions set forth in this paper; though it is very disagreeable to be always the person to tell unpleasant things to the great men.

I must add that Rintoul urged me to communicate freely with you on the subject, with which he is fully acquainted.
