As four days have now elapsed since I received your letter intimating my suspension from office, pending an enquiry to be made in reference to the issue of certain stamps, I have the honor to request that I may be informed of the nature of the charge against me, and of the time and place, when and where the gentlemen to whom the enquiry has been entrusted will sit, and that I may be allowed to be present when the enquiry is conducted and any evidence taken.
E. Brandon.The Hon. the Commissioner of Stamps Wellington.
