Mr Wilson to Mr Ainge

Scope and Content

Copy letter. Written from Sheffield. He has just seen Mr Wastell and had a good deal to talk about his future; thinks he means to leave them chiefly on account of his family and house. As his home is the chief thing he wishes they could secure him in London 'where he would give life to the whole thing'. It would require great care in the introduction but if some of their London Friends could take it up as their own idea it would be a very good thing.
