8th July, 1882.
Your letter was awaiting me on my return from Paris. In reply to your enquiry, I had the correspondence printed for the sake of reference, it being less difficult to read print than to wade through a mass of manuscript. I may, however, add that the only copies I have parted with I gave to Mr. Howell, and it is quite possible that Mr. Jack McNay obtained one through him.
I take no interest whatever in the information you volunteer as to what you intend doing in this matter in the future; it is now in Mr. Howell's hands, and I am satisfied that he is fully able to protect himself.
As far as I am concerned, I can only refer you to the last paragraph in my letter to you of 27th March.
S. Wreford Paddon.
