Dear Henslow

Just before I left Cambridge this morning I received the promises of two incepting Masters Welsby and Fredc. Pearson. They both give their second vote to Copley. Fredc. Pearson promises to do all he possibly can for us and send me four or five directions which I have sent up to Ld. P. tonight that at least he may canvass them by a circular. Williamson 32 Kirkgate Leeds is furious against the Catholics & votes for Copley and Goulborn.

yours very truly

R.C. Hildyard
