Scope and content

Fr Phillips had bid £500 for one and three quarters of an acre of meadow close to the Church - apparently without gaining Diocesan permission - now bid has transferred to Fr Ketterer. The Post Office's bid has been accepted for £300 for three quarters of an acre. The remainder would be suitable for a church and presbytery. Canon Squirrell knows of this and suggested writing to the Bishop to explain the position. This is a useful bit of land; can he bid around £350 for it? Since the Bishop is in Norwich that week he can come and see it.
