Fr Davidson to Bishop: Accepting Bishop's decision; Acknowledges he will not be at Thetford for very long

Accepts the Bishop's decision as God's Will. He cannot pay the cost of removal to another poverty stricken place having spent every penny in erecting the Church and dealing with the Convent. Can he have a loan (on easy terms) of at least £50? Has Bishop's word he will not be long at Thetford. Aldeburgh congregation are loyal and very good and will be distressed at his leaving - especially to Thetford.
Manuscript p.s. : "I have just received your second letter - I will do whatever you wish. You know my feelings."

Fr Davidson to Bishop: Asks for another place; depressed

Fr Davidson is asking for a move to a small place. He is depressed and loathes "this place" and the bad influence of Mr Winckworth (staying with protestants). He feels useless and harmful. A fresh outlook in a small place; offers to guarantee to do no harm in such a place.
Manuscript annotation: "Send me acct. of what came in [partial word] annually that I may extract what the Diocese will be liable for when you leave for another mission. Also what functions your successor may have to find; for few in the Diocese have your private means then I'll look around & see who you can exchange with, for you are [several words indecipherable] . Oct. 22/29."

Fr Davidson to Bishop: Assignment to Thetford; Fr Webb going instead?

Text: "I thank you for your letter. Though I am well aware that my discontent through lack of outlet "for my superabundant energies" is rather foolish and unreasonable and worthy of censure, my attitude towards Thetford was in order. Your Lordship offered me Thetford. I took it to means "Stay at Aldeburgh and be reasonable". On hearing that you really wished me to go, I expressed willingness, though it was very distasteful to me. Hence your Lordship must not put a bad mark against me over the Thetford episode. I do not wish to be labelled in your mind as a disobedient priest. I will always carry out your final decisions as soon as they are quite definite. I hope your Lordship is better. Webb seems very pleased to go to Thetford."
Manuscript annotation: "Answered. No black mark against you.; done so well at Aldeburgh. Perhaps did not allow sufficient for you being a canny Scot! I know that when the time comes to move far you will not have a choice but go where your Bishop thinks it is best for the Diocese. March 15/28."

The convent pays £1 per month since last May. Shall make things easy for his successor.
Manuscript p.s.: "My sister will, I expect, come with me to the new place which would eliminate financial difficulties. That of course depends on where I am sent. I repeat I am ready to go anywhere with complete willingness - even to one of the four which strike one as less interesting."

Fr Davidson to Bishop: Stay at Aldeburgh to finish the church; Bishop's letter clarified his mind on this

Fr Davidson prefers to stay in Aldeburgh and see the Church finished - never willingly go to Thetford. Bishops letter helpful in clarifying his mind on this. Invites Bishop to stay and enjoy the sea air.
Manuscript annotation: "Answered. Fear it is definitely marching orders, in 3 weeks' time. All vineyards of the Lord, big or small, as the Lord's, where souls are to be saved. You will not be long at Thetford, for I desire for you far bigger things."

Fr Davidson to Bishop: Summary of his situation at Aldeburgh

Fr Davidson thinks things will be easier for his successor since he is the target of individuals making scandal & maligning him. And their cheating. Encloses an inventory. Corrects the Bishop's view of his income - only small. He had thought Thetford was an offer but after a further year in Aldeburgh he would certainly have gone there. Happy with any place, except four, and will go wherever the Bishop sends him.
