Letter from Reverend John Hyde to Ralph N Wornum

Date 7 Jun 1873

Relating to amendments to Wornum's publication on St Paul, "the strength of a chain is only that of its weakest link". He argues that Wornum should include points "in Paul's favour" stating that "your object is not merely to slaughter Paul's reputation false & pernicious as it is but also to convince and lead your reader with you".
