Coates informs Raisbeck that he wrote to Mr Mewburn requesting him to delay going into a Committee on the Bill for two days, but that Edward Pease has written to Francis Mewburn insisting him not to delay. Coates mentions that as ‘Leo R has requested to proceed with as much dispatch as he could to London and endeavour to persuade Lord Shaftsbury to allow the Bill to pass’ he thought it right to tell him that ‘in making his arrangements he need not calculate upon having two days grace’.

St’n & D’n Railway Bill

John Coates begs to inform his friend Leo’d Raisbeck that he wrote (as he promised) to F Mewburn yesterday, requesting him to defer going into a Committee on the Bill for 2 days, and put his letter into the post (alsho he afterwards recollected that yesterday was not a London post day). To day however JC understands that Edward Pease has written to Francis Mewburn instructing him not to delay. Upon JC informing EP that he had written to FM to that effect EP informed JC that he never understood the Meeting had come to such a conclusion but that Leo R was requested to proceed with as much dispatch as he could to London and endeavour to persuade L’d Shaftesbury to allow the Bill to pass with the restriction clause.
Such being the case JC has thought it only right and proper to inform LR in order that in making his arrangements he need not to calculate upon having 2 days grace.
