'...

I assisted in obtaining the nomination of Mr J. Lee to be Master of the St James's National School, which he has now held for above nine years, with the highest praise & approbation of the Bishop of London ... he is now a Candidate to be Head-Master of the National Society's Central School Sanctuary Westminster, & your influence in the Committees of Electors, is well known to be, as it well deserves to be most powerful. ...'
