HC Deb 23 March 1885 vol 296 c230

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether he has now any statement to make with respect to "handing over to his relatives" Vol. 6 of General Gordon's Journal; whether this has been done; and, whether he has received any replies from General Gordon's relatives on the subject?


I am still in communication with Sir Henry Gordon on this subject, and I hope very shortly to be able to make a statement to the House. It is possible we may not be able finally to consider the question of the disposal of these diaries until the other five are received, which, as we have heard from Lord Wolseley, have been sent by the mail of March 10.
