§ MR. FELL
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he has any official information showing any connection between the capture and holding for ransom of Kaid Maclean and the payment by this Government of the ransom for Mr. Abbott and by the Belgian Government for the Belgian subject captured recently.
§ SIR EDWARD GREY
The Answer is in the negative. The trouble in this case is entirely between Raisuli and the Moorish Government.
