From Walter Raleigh Browne [after 7] January 1881
38, Belgrave Road, S. W.
At the Private Conference, held by His Grace the Archibishop of Canterbury, at Lambeth Palace, on 7th inst., the following Resolution was passed unanimously:—
“That it is desirable that th〈o〉se Scientific men who believe in the truths of Religion, should take every fitting opportunity of stating that belief; and that the following be appointed a Committee, with power to add to their number, for the purpose of maintaining communication amongst those desirous of promoting this object:— His Grace the Archibishop of Canterbury, Prof. Stokes, Prof. Balfour Stewart, Dr. Sorby, Prof. Rolleston, Dr. Gladstone and Prof. McKendrick; Hon. Sec., Mr. Walter Browne.”
It was suggested that such expressions of opinion might preferably take the form of articles to be published through the periodical press; and I shall be greatly obliged by any suggestions as to writers or subjects for such articles.
Thanking you sincerely for your interest in the movement, | I remain, | Yours truly, | Walter E Browne
Announces the resolution passed by the Archbishop of Canterbury’s conference of 7 Jan 1881.
