4My dear Friend

6I am sending this note home by my youngest brother. I want him very
7much to meet him while he is in London. I believe you would be
8mutually interested in eachother. He has been for many years Legal
9Adviser to High Commission here, first to Sir H Robinson, & now to Sir
10Henry Loch, & in the capacity of Legal Adviser accompanied by the
11Swaziland Commission two years ago. I don’t think any man in South
12Africa has a deeper knowledge of our political & State affairs. He
13will I fear be only a very short time in London, but I hope you will
14be able to arrange to see something of him. I am writing this in great
15haste & cannot rightly answer your last. I shall do so next week.

17Yours Always
