The Hon. Mr Justice Haslam,

Judega's Chambers, Supreme Court, Wellington.

Dear Justice Haslam,

I have received the letter of your Associate.

I think it is quite unfair of you to accuse me of lack of courtesy. Tour suggestion that I withheld information about the reasons why I require the Information I thought you could provide, is utterly contemptible. Moreover, it is easily refuted. I stated the reason in my letter of 4 February: " I have asked these questions to assist at in my research into relations between New Zealand and South Africa."

I asked these questions of yourself because I believed you to be the Chairman of the NZ Rhodes Scholarship Committee and therefore in a position to assist my researches.

I now think you are either not the Chairman of this Committee, or you do not want to tell facts for which I asked. I think it is most insulting of you to return my correspondence and my respect for you has diminished accordingly.

Yours faithfully,

Chriatopher Wainwright
