The Founders of Canterbury

Reigate, 22nd February, 1849

Reigate, 22nd February, 1849.

My Dear Godley,

—I am getting concerned at not hearing from you or of you, fearing you may be unwell. I have got a very warm, cheerful, sunny, dry house, with spare bed rooms, where, if you were disposed for quiet and fresh air, it would be a great pleasure to me to see you mate yourself at home with or without notice, as there will be servants in the house when I am away.

Colonial reform seems to be moving on, past your friends. Even the Mothercountry tribe are getting hold of it; and their next "shift" will be to do it enough for stopping the hubbub. But if so, what becomes of your friends?
