From W. R. Browne| 21 December 1880
38 Belgrave Road | SW
Dec 21 80
I regret to learn that your health will in any case prevent your attending the proposed Conference at Lambeth: but to prevent your having any misconception as to its objects, I venture to enclose a proof of the Proceeding as at present sketched out. I know the Abp is anxious to obtain expressions of opinion, even from those who do not see the desirability of holding such a meeting; & that he wd particularly value such an expression from you. I am sure therefore he wd be obliged if, in returning the paper, you could kindly make any remarks either on particular points, or on the subject in general.
Yours truly | Walter R Browne
Chas Darwin Esq FRS
