TitleLetter; H. Cameron, Huntingdon, to 7th Earl of Sandwich
DescriptionHas been to London and seen Mr. White, the Accountant General, about the allowance White admitted the equity of the case, which is curious considering the last letter. Was sent to the F.I. department, from which the last letter came. Was told there that the Warrant of 1876 was quoted in error, and that it was not an unanswerable argument. Was told that the War Office would have to apply to the Treasury for authority to pay it, and that if Mr. Campbell Bannerman, the Financial Secretary, could be persuaded to apply, it might be given. Hears that Dubery is likely to succeed him, as Vernon is thought to be too senior. The flood have gone down.
