Carbon copy of letter. Written from Pitsmoor. Gives an account of an unsatisfactory interview he had with Hardy trying to make him give a correct account of six days for which there are no reports. 'Finally I said it is getting to be not a question of one month's notice nor of three months but of any notice at all under these circumstances'. He then said it was impossible to satisfy me and left.
Mr Wilson to Mr Edmondson

'Mr Swan has written me on a scheme of his for getting the Good Templars to declare ...'
The Good Templars was the largest Temperance Society of that period with a membership of 350,000 men. In the correspondence between the two (11 Jun, 12 Jun and 27 Jun) the pros and cons of getting the support of such a body of men were discussed
HJW was afraid of being too much linked with 'prohibition' and their final verdict was against being closely linked with the Templars
