Fr Clare to Bishop: New altar changes in design proposed

Pleased Bishop agrees with him about height of altar piece. He has had great tussle with artist as she made it higher in the sketch & some priests were in favour. Architect agreed it should be lower. Sacristan will then be able to put candles on altar without using steps.

Fr Clare from Bishop: New altar boxy but if it works for Fr Clare then have it

Bishop returns drawing of Altar. He does not like it; it is too like a couple of boxes. Those he showed it to thought it was a vestment chest & liked it as such. But, if Fr Clare wants it, has found money for it & subscribers like it, he can have it.

Fr Noel Burditt to Fr Lydiate: Bishop pleased on RI for children (but manage it); Altar stone for Italian Camp; Plans for a church; Fr Flanagan & his furniture

Bishop has thanked Ely Council Education Committee regarding Religious Instruction for RC children. Fr Lydiate must ensure children attend and get back to school on time to avoid complaints. An altar stone secured for the Italian Camp - 30 shillings credited to account by Fr Hunting (manuscript annotation) - Bishop regards it as his when use finished. Plans for a potential church sent, Bishop wants Fr Lydiate to study them. Similar church in North Walsham built just before the war and Fr Lydiate encouraged to go and see it. Councillor Mallet is written to about jewellery. Return of chalice - check it is satisfactory and if it has been fire-gilt. Fr Mortimer Flanagan will be claiming back his furniture from March when he starts at Swaffham. Bishop hopes Fr Lydiate will be able to make suitable arrangements for his own furniture.
