My Dear Sir,

I write to ask, though I am sorry to be so troublesome, if you would like to meet the other gentlemen – from Lackham & Nolen & the Mill, who, taking the rare opportunity of all being at home at the same time, together, propose to meet at my house to-morrow at 11Ì o’clock – to consider the plans – I laid before you yesterday week, for reseating the Parish Church

This seems advisable before calling a Parish Vestry or any further proceedings – I omitted to shew you, the other day. The Architects Report of the state of the Church to the Vicar & Churchwardens but should you like to see it I could either call, or send it to you, this Afternoon

Believe me dear Sir yrs very truly
Arthur Blomfield
