MR. GIBSON BOWLES (Lynn Regis)
Have the Government any further communication with reference to the Somali War?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Lord CRANBORNE, Rochester)
We have heard that Colonel Swayne has reached the coast at Berbera, leaving Colonel Cobbe in command at Bohotle. The garrison there is perfectly safe, and the guns have arrived. We have also heard that the wounded are doing very well.
