FROM
THE BISHOP OF DOVER
ST MARTINS PRIORY,
CANTERBURY.
3rd April, 1941.
Dear Edwards,
Of course I would be delighted to take the wedding. Tell your daughter so with my love. I know you will give me what notice you can, and I shall look forward to coming.
I have for years made a rule, whenever I marry a couple, that I see them beforehand, take them through the marriage service, and rub in the implications of Christian marriage and the solemnity of the promises. I find it well worth doing because, quite apart from satisfying one's own conscience [inserted] that [/inserted] one is not allowing them to marry with their eyes shut, it also means that they understand the service when they get to it. But in this case I am sure I can leave all that to you. You can probably do it better than I can.
Yours sincerely,
[underlined] Alfred Dover [/underlined]
