• To My Dear Wardell, , “I must apologise for not answering your letter earlier. I was from home all week and I had no time to reply on Sunday or yesterday. I fear it is not possible for me to preach as your father asks; my time will now be as fully occupied till I go down to Devon as can be, indeed I have not time to sneeze with (it) all the work I have to do. I am going to ask you to do my wife a favour some day. I shall be in town next week and return, probably on Saturday. She will drive in and meet me, returning from town, but is very timorous of driving in the town, especially on a market day, as she is not much of a Jehu [the great charioteer of the Bible] & she intends to drive up to your door and to beg you kindly to take the reins as far as the Red Lion.”
