Aug 13th 1884
May I trouble you to read the enclosed letter about Samuel Moroka. I feel sure you cannot do anything, but I feel bound to let you know about the state of affairs especially as I am requested to do so by my correspondent. I am more disheartened about this than I can express, and I have refused to believe it, as long as it was only newspaper reports.
I know you will let me have the letter back as soon as you conveniently can, as several of Samuel’s greatest friends are wanting to have all particulars. Forgive my troubling you, but although I feel how wrongly Samuel has acted, I would do anything I possibly could to save him; we have been great friends for 23 years.
