§ SIR E. ASHMEAD-BARTLETT
I wish to ask the right hon. Gentleman the Secretary of the Colonies a question of which I have given him private notice, whether Sir Hercules Robinson and Sir Jacobus tie Wet knew on January 7 of the terms of Dr. Jameson's surrender; and, if so, why Her Majesty's representatives informed the Uitlanders in Johannesburg on that day that the lives of Dr. Jameson and his men depended upon their surrender?
§ MR. J. CHAMBERLAIN
I have no information on the subject at present; but I have telegraphed to South Africa, 1493 and if my hon. Friend will put down his question for Thursday I think I will then be in a position to answer it.
