The Bishop of Salisbury
Religion and Religious Institutions
You may justly wonder that I should have hitherto delaied writing after I had received so long a letter form you in matters that were of much importance, both in themselves & in relation to you-
I do not wonder that when you wrote me so long an account of so many things that you forgot some- one was a direction how I might write to you that has put me to some trouble in my thoughts. I was in doubt whether the ordinary way was safe & I did not know of any other till within this week your brother asked my man if I was to write to you in answer to yours & told him how to convey it, so this has put an end to that difficulty; the other was that you did not tell me how farre you allowed me to speak to the person concerned, but since you had not limited me I reckoned that you left me to my own discretion which I resolved to follow, yet with all possible caution with relation to you.
