The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 26
Colonial Secretary's Office, Wellington, 7th November, 1874
7th November, 1874.
I am directed by the Colonial Secretary to enclose a copy of an article, appearing in the Otago Daily Times, of the 30th page 19 ultimo, purporting to be a telegraphic communication from a Wellington correspondent. As this communication is said to be give a description of the contents of the Report of the Commission appointed to hear and report upon the charges against you, which Report has not been accessible to any person outside the Civil Service except to yourself or through communication from you, Dr. Pollen desires to be informed by what means a series of statements so scandalously untrue found their way into the public prints.
G. S. Cooper.Eustace Brandon, Esq., Wellington.
