Scope and content

Mentions a Methodist Minister - Mr [Hugh Price?] Hughes - who 'has recently become a member' of their Union. Has asked [Edward] Enfield to provide Sidgwick with Hughes' address. Thinks Sedley Taylor's pamphlet is 'excellent for the class of readers whom he chiefly desires to influence', and while it is 'a little formal and limited in the construction of its argument', is 'entirely free from any narrowness of principle which can raise a scruple on [their] part.' Expresses his apologies for being unable to attend the Committee meeting the following day, on account of 'being called out of town for two or three days.' Reports that he has written his opinion to [Mr] Enfield.
