TAIT (Archibald Campbell, 1811-1882, from 1868 Archbishop of Canterbury)

Part Autograph Letter Signed to George Augustus Selwyn, (1809-1878, first Bishop of New Zealand, 1841, from 1867 Bishop of Lichfield), referring to "the interest I feel in the neighbourhood of Eckington", and asking for any suggestion he can communicate to Lady Schick, "We hope to return to Addington nr Croydon tomorrow ... on my way back from Scotland, pretty well thank God", he supposes "your Lordship will soon be on yr route to America. I think the voyage may do you as well as the Church much good", last 3 sides 7" x 4½", Woodend, Scarborough, no date but 1871 or

As Bishop of London, Tait had vastly opened up the scope of missionary work there, preaching in the open air in dockland, bus depots, railway stations and at Covent Garden, and he had a natural sympathy with Selwyn's work in New Zealand. Behind his comment "pretty well" lies the recurrent ill-health against which he fought all his life.
