Charles George Gordon letter

Scope and Content

Address: Khartoum, [Sudan]. To the Mudir [Governor] of Dongola. Indicates briefly the state of affairs at Khartoum and asks for news of the relieving force. The letter appears to be more a record of a few spoken sentences than a connected message. A transcription of the Arabic into Latin script and two different translations into English are filed with the original.
