HC Deb 05 July 1843 vol 70 c719
Dr. Bowring

wished to know whether the Government had received any information respecting the failure or the success of the mission to Shoa; and if' the Government, supposing the mission to be terminated, had any objection to lay the despatches, before the House?

Sir R. Peel

said, that a letter had been received from the Bombay government, which stated that Captain Harris had forwarded to the Bombay government the original treaty between the King of Shoa and this country. This was the whole of the information which had been received, and lie (Sir Robert Peel) inferred from this letter that the treaty had been completed so far as the King of Shoa was concerned. Captain Harris was at present on his way to England, and when he arrived the treaty would be laid on the Table.
