Letter from James Drummond to Nora Sidgwick

Gives a list of dates connected with the Free Christian Union, including the date of the meeting to propose its foundation and appoint a Committee in University Hall, and the dates of the meetings to constitute the Union and to settle the final form of constitution, and of the first and second annual meetings. Adds that there was 'a good deal of private conference, and some public controversy, before the earliest of these dates [14 June 1867], in order to clear the ground for the Union'; and that the facts are 'pretty fully related' in his [Drummond's] biography of James Martineau.
