Scope and Contents

"Aug: 29 '74. My dear Mr Lewis, The friends of J.H. Foley are anxious he should be buried in St. Pauls, and Canon Liddon tells me that we must have two or three of the chief names in art to support the application: will you kindly send me your aid writing a letter in support of the plan that I may receive on Monday morning. I have to see the Canon at 2 P.M. on Monday to present the letters and help him select the site. You see there is no time to be lost. The Canon proposes Thursday next for the funeral. Most truly yours, T. Woolner. I am grieved to trouble you, but if you can get the letter written your own signature will be enough."
