Written from Rawal Pindi. Postmark 25 Oct 1899
Thanking him for parcels of papers he has sent out; especially pleased with 'The Decrease of Venereal Disease in England during the past 20 years' by Maurice Gregory; he would like to send it out to every missionary and Commanding Officer in India. Hopes to have Petitions signed by most of the missionaries to send to him and perhaps one from the Chaplains. The Metropolitan (Dr Welldon) has come out strongly on their side. He means also to see the new General there - Maj. Gen. Boyce Combe. The White Cross is largely disregarded by the officers as a goody-goody affair.
