Springfield, Reigate, 7th March, 1849.
My Dear Mr. Dean,
—It would be a great satisfaction and pleasure to me, if I could see you as soon as you shall have a little leisure. I would gladly go to town on purpose if you gave me a few days notice. Or, if you would favour me with your company here, it would be still more agreeable. In the latter case I should ask Rintoul to meet you, and perhaps Mr. Godley, in order that we might have a good talk about colonization, of which the prospects were never, according to my view, so bright as at present, though the probability of early and important reformation is only plain to the few who keep a vigilant look out for symptoms of change.
