Dear Mr Chesson,
I have written to Archdeacon Glover after your suggestion and he declines to write the letter for the Times. That ‘act of submission’ (or ‘act of forcibility’ as Gabriel David so aptly called it) makes him feel Samuel so entirely in the wrong that he could not defend him. Can you apply to [feu Lacy?] whom you named to me. It will not do to delay long trying something. Mr Anderson had all the important particulars written in a more collected form … could you not apply to him for it? I don’t fancy he would give to me, but he writes word that he quite agrees with you a well known man would be best to write it. He is as much a stranger to me as to you, but is said to be a very kind old man. Did you see that nasty Mr Bourdellon’s letter in the Standard yesterday? I do so want to know if you have hear from Mr de Villiers or Sir Wilfred and what he says. Excuse haste, I write … with many thanks.
