A report upon his visit to the Archbishop of Canterbury to deliver the letters of Lee and Jay asking for the consecration of an Episcopal bishop of the U.S. The Archbishop received him kindly, indicated his approval of this step, and was relieved to learn that the creation of a bishop would not be taken amiss by other denominations in America.
