20 April [between 1876 and 1883] · Westminster, England
Farrar served as rector at St. Margaret's Church, Westminster, and later as Dean of Canterbury, and he was author of the once-famous novel for boys, Eric, or Little by Little. He writes this correspondent, a member of an unnamed society, that he believes he will be able to speak at a meeting, and asks aid in raising funds to restore St. Margaret's — which needs (and in his tenure got) substantial, expensive TLC.
