Some months ago there was handed to me from St.
George's Rectory, Hobart, a small packet, on which was
written " Old Tasmanian Letters from Dr. C. "
It was naturally supposed they were connected with the
early history of the church (St. George's, Battery Point,
Hobart), in which I was much interested. I looked forward
eagerly to reading them, thinking they might have
to do with the dispute between Sir John Franklin and
Captain Montagu over building the tower. They might
contain a note from Lady Franklin when she sent her five
guineas towards a peal of bells, which, alas, never
materialised. They might even be part of that very willing
theological controversy between Bishop Nixon and Dr.
Henry Phibbs Fry!
