3 committee at Home. I enclose a paper copied from one he sent me
4stating some of the things he had seen. He has property in Natal
5Mashonaland; but he will only loose it all if it is know he is going
6to give evidence, but if he can arrange it he would be willing to go
7home, if his expenses were paid. I can't pay them for him, but do you
8not think Sauer could arrange with some of the committee to have his
9expenses ^Wh ?If I wrote ?signed to him?^ Would it be any use sending
10this paper to Sauer, or is there any one else in England to whom you
11would advise my sending it?

13 Please show to no one the enclosed, & return to me unless you think
14the matter worth arranging yourself I am writing to Nelson a English
15MP to see what he can do in the matter, but want to have more than one
16iron in the fire.
