Scope and content

Address c.1857 from members of the Church of England resident in Kingston to Francis Nixon, Bishop of Tasmania, concerning their pastor, Rev. E. Freeman. Call upon Your Lordship to exercise the authority vested in you as Bishop of the Diocese, to remove the Rev. E. Freeman from this parish, and to nominate as his successor some discreet and faithful minister of God's Word, whose friendly counsels may advise them in the time of health and prosperity, and whose prayers and affectionate sympathies may console, comfort, and support them in the hour of adversity, sorrow, anguish, and of death.
Signed by Robert Williams and 21 others.
