The agitation about Welsh Disestablishment is becoming a little menacing. The Nonconformist Ministers are afraid it is being squeezed out by more urgently pressed claims & they have summoned a great Conference for next Thursday to pass strong resolutions & I have no doubt to make stronger speeches in support of them ... There is a good deal to be said for all this anxiety &I think their demand reasonable. Wales has returned Liberal majorities for Disestablishment since 1865. Gladstone then put them off for 30 years. They are afraid that Wales being small & silent may be forgotten even now.

I wish you could see your way to send me a strong letter. You have no better friends than these half-insurgent Welsh ministers ...
