To the Very Reverend THE PROLOCUTOR and the Reverend THE CLERGY of the Lower House of Convocation of the Province of Canterbury.

MY REVEREND BRETHREN,

When, at the last Session of Convocation, the question of the reappointment of Suffragan Bishops was brought forward by my Reverend friend the Proctor for the Clergy of the Diocese of Lincoln (Mr Massingberd), it occurred to me that I had in my possession some Manuscript Papers treating on this subject. Having since examined these Papers, and finding that they contain some very interesting and valuable matter, I have taken the liberty of submitting them to your consideration.

I am,

My Reverend Brethren,

Yours most faithfully,

JAMES FENDALL,

PROCTOR FOR THE CLERGY OF THE

DIOCESE OF ELY.

HARLTON RECTORY,

June 14, 1858.
