Received at 7.45 A.M. May 2/71. With reference to this telegram, I would suggest that a postscript should be added to the draft of the Despatch to Governor Musgrave in the following words;
Since writing the above I have received your second telegram informing me that Mr Philippo accepts the appointment offered to him and that he will leave by the next mail.
Understanding, therefore, that Mr Philippos acceptance is unconditional I have replied by telegraph that he will be appointed.
