S1R.-In your annotation to Mi. Issard-Davies' letter there is the word " but."
I have sat on many committees with and have known Mr. IssardDavies a long time. 1 am very sorry it should have been necessary to ask for confirmation of his statement.
I do beg to assure you that what he has written is, the truth.
