17th March, 1875.
My Dear Sir,
It is quite untrue that I discontinued to act before the Commissioners on your behalf in consequence of any belief that you would not come out with clean hands. I was very busy at the time, and it being quite clear that the graver charges against you had broken down and that you could only be found to have committed breaches of discipline, I requested you to relieve me from further attendance as you were quite competent to meet these charges yourself.
Wm. Thos. Locke Travers.E. de B. Brandon, Esq., Wellington.
