TitleSamuel Goodenough to James Edward Smith, Norwich, [Norfolk]
DescriptionDiscussion of Catholic Emancipation: Smith calls himself a "heretic" but Goodenough shall not apply the term, believes "moderate men of all persuasions think pretty nearly alike". Believes Roman Catholics cannot yet be trusted with power, citing the example of their College of Maynooth, [The Royal College of St Patrick, established 1795, near Dublin, Ireland]. Thinks the Irish will join Napoleon until they gain not the level but the upper hand. Forwarded Smith's letter to [Amelia Warren] Griffiths [(1768-1858), algologist]. Shocked to see [Richard] Salisbury's "surreptitious anticipation" of [Robert] Brown's paper on the New Holland plants ['Proteaceae'] under the name of [George] Hibbert's [(1757-1837), merchant] gardener, [Joseph] Knight [(c 1777-1855)]. Refused to talk to Salisbury at the Royal Society meeting. Mrs Goodenough "nearly killed" falling down the stairs.
