We have always consulted you on matters of this
kind and our failure to do so in the present case, for
which we apologise, was due merely to a lapse that came
about in the absence of old hands. Our excuse was that
Colonel Gastrell seemed to have approved the proposal.
This of course, was not enough.

^ c ~' ' suspend action on our despatch No.4L of ’ !4th February.
A copy of this telegram is being sent to you.
