Father Colin Gill (Master of the Guardians of the Anglican Shrine) invites Fr Birch, the Bishop and the new Administrator, [Rvd Colven] to dine with him at his home in Walsingham. Asks the Bishop (or the Dean?) to commission a new Communion Minster, to offset the loss of others, he needs more than one.
Reminding the Bishop about his letter of 8 May and that the "ball is in your court". Rev Colven at the Anglican Shrine is very pleased to accept a Feast offered by our Bishops as a common feats of Our Lady of Walsingham.
Apologises for not informing the Bishop of the date for the National Pilgrimage. Cannot make the meal a "home fixture" as Revd Gill invited him. Suggest instead that the Bishop invites him, Revd Gill and Revd Colven to Poringland for a meal. [Manuscript annotations about arrangements at a later date]

Consecration - "low key" but with some publicity Might I [Fr Birch] have exceeded my responsibility? Asks for clarification as he is unaware of doing so, although Canon McBride says he has. Not repentant since given no limits to his brief.
