Mr Green has sent me the enclosed to read and has asked me to send it on to you. He told me on Monday last that you wished him to consult me as to his seeing Mr [Vilner?], the Wesleyan Secretary. It seemed to me a good idea, if it would prevent Mr Vilner’s saying anything against Samuel afterwards. I am sorry the meeting cannot take place till next week as Lent may interfere with the attendance of many of Samuel’s clerical supporters. I think I understood that you considered it best that all reports on his case should be kept out of the papers until after the meeting, if possible. The church papers are very anxious to publish an account of him.
