Letter

Scope and Content

From [C. Wallace] to F. Baker. He says he will call at Baker's brother's office to collect some books. He is particularly interested in the position of the Booth family towards the Presbyterians of their day. He comments that Presbyterians were as much a political as a religious body and reflects how unpleasant it must have been for Baker to have "that vulgar wretch Davis" at his school the other day. He asks whether Baker will be at [?] this year. He himself had scruples but his wife decided him and he thinks W. Ainsworth will be glad to see him. He looks forward to another visit from Baker and his wife.

Dated at Hale Lodge.
