Private and Confidential

My Lord Bishop,

I am writing to let you know that the King has been pleased to approve your appointment to the new Suffragan See of Dunwich. I have so informed the Bishop of St. Edmundsbury and Ipswich.

As regards the date for the announcement of your appointment, I would propose to give the notice to the press next Tuesday evening to appear in the newspapers on the following day. If you prefer an earlier or a later date, perhaps you would be kind enough to let me know.

Yours very truly,
Nevile Butler1
