Place: Matlock Bath [Derbyshire, England]
From: G. W. Saxton
To: The Revd John Smithurst, Indian Settlement, Red River, N.W. America
Details: 4pp including integral address face.
Notes: Saxton writes about the clergymen and parishes in the neighbourhood of Matlock Bath. Mr. Ward, his wife, and two sons have all died. The remaining sons are “very unsteady.” Saxton’s local Church Missionary Society group has been busy fundraising. Saxton recently purchased a copy of the Bishop of Montreal’s journal and found it very interesting. He finishes the letter saying he’ll leave news of the new railway for Miss Alsop to write about.
