Inscription

Dear Mr Cole

I much regret that I cannot accept your invitation to take part in your conference Jan. 23 & I fear that I have no name to suggest as an alternative.

With best wishes
Yours sincerely

Notes

Alan Cole
Rev Dr Harold Roberts, (1896-1982) Principal of Richmond College from 1940 until 1968
He was considered the best Methodist preacher of the day, but a lesser writer.
He was president of the 1957 conference and president of the World Methodist Council (1951-1956) set up a new mechanism for linking world Methodism more closely.
The card was written to me as vice-chairman of the, now infamous, Turner Society.
