My dear McLean,

I send you:- (1) A telegram received by the Suez Mail, about the attack on the Queen. I think you should send it to the newspapers here. (2) Manihiri's letter - I hope you will draft a reply as it shd. receive some acknowledgment. Pray return the translation when done with. The original can remain a record in yr. Dept.

There is nothing of importance in the despatches I will show them to you tomorrow if you will come over any time after 10; also a private letter from Lord Kimberley.


Yours very truly,
G. F. Bowen.
To:- The Honble. Donald McLean, C.M.G.
