My dear Sir,
A Salary to the Gns <2> would I admit have much effect in securing their attendance – but as upon the whole there will be 20,000 Gns in England & Wales – the smallest remuneration thus multiplied would give too Large a result to justify its adoption.
You will see that in a short time the labours of the Gns will be so materially diminished as not to acquire such frequent attendance as at present.
Excuse haste & believe me
Yours most truly
