The New Zealand Minister, Washington, to the Prime Minister
… Your telegram [No. 297] to hand subsequent to my return from an interview with King, during which I again strongly emphasised that his decision re Fiji was completely wrong and that our offer in every way was unconditional.

I am to see him again tomorrow morning at 11.30, when I will give him your message….3
