Text

expected to read or understand your Report
& who is violently pressed for time,
can understand.
Will you enable me to do this?
[of course nothing can be carried by a
“coup d’etat” -but at least word will be sent
home of the true state of the case.]
Will you tell me briefly, so that
a statesman not an engineer can understand:
– What your scheme is to do
– Why it does not go on
– & exactly how the matter stands now.
