My friend Mr … is an Indian authority from us to lecture and receive donation for our building as a commemoration of Her Most Emacious Majesty’s fiftieth year, our funds were not sufficient as we had to buy a special ground and beautify it. It is endorsed by our government agent … Gordon Esq, and Dr … Froome Esq of Newburry …. He is a member of parliament of West Middlesex for the House of Commons.
If it is within your power to help him along you will confer a great favour on your humble servants the Committee of the Jubilee Fund through me as a secretary general for that body. I have also written to our High Commissioner Right Hon Sir Charles Tupper to the same effect.
I am Sir
Your obedient servant
