THE EARL OF KIMBERLEY
Seeing the Lord Privy Seal in his place, I am anxious to ask him, Whether any news has been received by Her Majesty's Government of an authentic character respecting the statement that the Emperor Maximilian has been shot in Mexico?
§ THE EARL OF MALMESBURY
Her Majesty's Government has received no official information on the subject. The only news we have had is that which appears in a second edition of The Times, in one of Reuter's telegrams, confirming the report.
