The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 73

Premier's Office, Wellington, Sunday evening, 27th October, 1895

Premier's Office, Wellington, Sunday evening,

Sir,—I have the honour to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of this morning. In my letter to you of yesterday I informed you that I absolutely refused to be drawn into the quarrel and I also object very much to be used as the vehicle through which my colleague is to be attacked.

The relationship between you and myself has been of a friendly character, and, this being the case, I am surprised that you should endeavour to place me in a false position. I therefore decline to be drawn into a controversy with you in connection with this matter.

—Yours faithfully,

R. J. Seddon

Sir Walter L. Buller, K.C.M.G., Wellington.
