My dear Bishop
We are much pleased then that you will be able to pay us a visit with your daughter about the time [?] and as the sermon for the Church Pastoral [?] Society are fixed for Sunday March 9 I hope you will be able to arrange so as to undertake at least the [?] one in the Cathedral. An evening sermon in [?] preached the same day for the [?] at the other Church in this place, which is held by a good man [?] [?] by the [?] Trustees, who would be [?] pleased if you were able to take that also. But I will not push that, because you may not wish to take two sermons in one day. The annual [?] will be held the next day. I would be glad to hear from you as soon as you can let me know whether you can [?] yourself for that day. In the [?] as are invited to [?] of the Church, if anyone pushes who is not of the Cathedral itself, so that it is not always easy to learn a [?] much as our [?] could once.
[?] [?] yours,
The Rt. Rev.
