25th March, 1920
I beg to enclose herewith letter under date 17th instant, from Mr. Richard King, of William, New Bonaventure, T.B., in which he complains, I understand for the third time, of the non-receipt by him of the Memorial Card in respect of his late son, No. 2630, Lance Corporal Henry Arthur King. This matter has been brought to your notice on more than one occasion previously, and I felt sure that the Card, if already sent, would be traced by you and some satisfaction given to the next-of-kin. It would, appear, however, that there is still some omission somewhere, and I shall be glad if you will have the matter looked into, have the Card definitely traced, and if it has gone astray, indicate the same to us, so that another may be prepared, framed by you and sent forward with least possible delay. I shall be extremely obliged if you will give this matter your immediate attention, as it is really too bad that Mr. King should have to write so frequently on a matter which should have been disposed of upon the first complaint.
I have the honour to be,
Deputy Colonial Secretary
P.H. Hudson, Esq.,
