Henry Denny was the rector at St Giles Parish Church, Horstead Keynes, Sussex from 1918-1920. Mrs Benson mentioned in the letter is probably Mary Benson, the widow of the Archbishop of Canterbury.
Dear Mr Denny,
Many thanks. I really value letters from the Clergy. No, there is no reason for a gulf unless the church makes it. I do all I can to keep spiritualists as conservative as possible. We preach (or rather 'they' do) that it is wiser to harp upon those aspects of Xanity  on which we can all cordially agree, the facts rather than the mysteries.
I am very interested about Mrs. Benson.
