Affectionately yours in the Lord.

Thank Dodd for his letter. I do not write another as I am writing this. Assure dear Miller and Mrs M of my unfeigned sympathy with him as to his daughter and dear Neatby, and my desire for blessing on them unfeigned. I strongly suspect that the Peckham move was that the six were not one between ourselves, but tho’ patience might have wrought a more complete work, an entire clearance is, I doubt not, the best thing, if, as I said, grace and firmness are shown.

Completed letter to GVW running from p.10 to p.13.

Compare Letters Vol.1 p.409 (Morrish) or p.336.

This letter adds information re FWG, RTG, Arthur Wells, R Evans (to whom JND attributes the substance of the work in Canada), and [Captain F G] Scott. There's also an expurgated reference to W C Baynes on p.13 (which may be confirmed by comparing the letter on p.3 where he is called Craig Baynes).

If anyone has more info on R. Evans, or Arthur Wells, would be glad to know.
