My dear Sir
I take the liberty of sending for your perusal the enclosed. You will see how insulting it is. I hardly know how to answer it. The Vicar evidently wishes to quarrel and I would rather decline acting any longer as his Locum Tenens, than subject myself to his rudeness.
With great respect I am my dear Sir yours very truly
