My Dear Sir,

Mr. Britton, a literary friend of mine, visits your city, for the purpose of collecting the best information he can, relating to the history of your noble Cathedral; any introduction you can give him to the heads of the church, will be acceptable to him, and gratifying to me.

I beg you to present mine and Mrs. Oakley's best regards to your daughter, and believe me to be, my dear Sir,

Yours very truly,


(letters on miscellaneous and domestic subjects, by Benjamin Oakley)


1839 List of subscribers to "Recollections of Naples" - Osborn Snoulten, Esq., Canterbury


*The Poll of the Electors - freemen 1830 - Ald. O. SNOULTEN - Brother Freemen, upon no former occasion have I ever stood forward to address you with feelings of greater pleasure than at present, the satisfaction of seconding the nomination of a gentleman, whose principles I believe to be as independent as those of any man in the kingdom (applause). The principles which that Hon. Gentleman profess I do feel must be those of every true Patriot; and I hope that when you hear him declare them to you this day, you will unanimously declare him to be your Representative. I consider, gentlemen, that the spirit of intelligence which has now happily been diffused so universally throughout the country at large, has enabled every freeman to discriminate who are the fittest objects of so noble a distinction; and I do hope that the City of Canterbury, which has commenced so early will set an example to every other place worthy of imitation (Great Applause). Gentlemen, I will not trespass longer upon your time, than to allude for a moment to the circumstance of the family of the Hon. Richard Watson, whose family as you well know has been and still is justly celebrated for various acts of liberality and munificence throughout the whole of this county;.....I therefore second the motion of Ald. Frend, that the Hon. Richard Watson is a fit person to be chosen the Representative of the interests of this City in Parliament. (Great Applause).

Died at Canterbury (April), Mrs. Snoulten. - The Monthly Magazine 1801 pg. 281
