William Morris (24 March 1834 – 3 October 1896) was a British textile designer, poet, novelist, translator and socialist activist associated with the British Arts and Crafts Movement. He was a major contributor to the revival of traditional British textile arts and methods of production. His literary contributions helped to establish the modern fantasy genre, while he helped win acceptance of socialism in fin de siècle Great Britain. (From : Wikipedia.org.)

St Albans Cathedral I

As honorary secretary of the "Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings," I cannot help expressing my satisfaction, which I have no doubt will be shared by all my colleagues, at the letter which appears in The Times of to-day from Lord Carnarvon, as chairman of the Society of Antiquaries of London, with reference to the contemplated alteration of the roof of St. Albans Abbey.

I have no doubt that the opinion expressed by Lord Carnarvon represents the feeling of antiquaries and men of taste throughout the country very generally.

Our society has already written to the "Restoration Committee" of St. Albans deprecating the contemplated alterations.

Letter to the Times, 2 August 1878.
