Dear Sir
I rec’d a notice signed by Otley of a Committee Meeting to be held on Tuesday the 8th Inst at 10 0’clock previous to the Gen’l Meeting of the Railway Co to be held that day. I don’t mean to attend at Darlington so that if the Quakers please to abuse me, my presence may not be a check to them I shall however send my proxies by Cairns who may [illegible] my place on the opposition benches he is a good Bulldog & if he cannot bite he will at least bark but biting the Quakers would be useless it would be merely biting the chains with which we are fettered.

I am D’r Sir
Yours faithfully
T Meynell
