Bishop Parker to Fr Higham: Moving to Blakeney

"Mr Dear Joe, I am very glad to hear that you are able to go to Blakeney, but sorry to hear that you have got to the stage when you have to retire - what is the matter? However, I have great pleasure in giving the faculties you ask for confessions and preaching, subject to the restrictions in the Code. I hope to see you some time at Blakeney, but I am just off to Rome until mid-December. I hope that you will have better health; Blakeney is a delightful place, but has very few Catholics. I presume you will have a housekeeper as it would be very lonely without one. "
