To G. S. Ffinden 21 May 1
My dear Sir
As you state that your funds fall short, I shall be h. to raise my S. by £10 & here enclose a cheque for £35, but I am not willing to go beyond this amount—2
Permit me to add that Mr Powell misunderstood me in supposing that I intend to subscribe in any case for the building of Vicarage.3 I did so only under the [1 word illeg] [circumstances] which then occurred.—
I sincerely hope that all your exertion & labour which you have taken about the Ch. may be successful & I remain | my dear s | yours —— | C. D.
Sends £35 as his subscription towards the building of a vicarage.
