Pusey to Gladstone 8 Feb 1847 

 

‘Everything seems to withdraw me from attempting to do any thing for the Church, I mean it not upon her as a whole. I feel myself a suspected person, go to no meetings, take part in no societies, (tho I continue to subscribe) … On the other hand, even before this break up, God had begun to give me a more individual work, and a large parish, as it were, in the cure of souls who come to me … This seems to me now the work given for me to do, when He has withdrawn the other. …’
