§ THE EARL OF CLARENDON
My Lords, I have the honour to present a Message from His Majesty the King, signed with his own hand. The Message is as follows:I thank you sincerely for your loyal and dutiful Address informing me of the deep sorrow and indignation with which you have learned of the assassination of His Majesty King Abdullah of the Jordan. I fully share the sentiments to which your Address gives expression, and I will take care to convey to the Government of the Jordan the sense of abhorrence which, in common with myself, you feel for this detestable crime, and your sympathy with the family of His late Majesty, with the Government and with the people of the Jordan.
