A FINE ASSOCIATION COPY OF THE UNPUBLISHED REPORT ON THE EMIN PASHA EXPEDITION. Sir George, a member of the Relief Committee, has marked the wrapper 'Proof only' and 'Confidential', and has made a number of suggested alterations as well as inserting a typescript of the proposed text that was to be substituted (at Stanley's suggestion) for the present chapter 'VI. The Charges in Connection with the Rear Column'. Sir George also explains on the verso of the wrapper the circumstances which led to the eventual complete supression of the report. All this apparently for the benefit of Lady Stanley. Henry Curtis, the author of the 3pp. letter dated 9 August 1910, was Lady Stanley's second husband and here writes to thank Sir George, on Lady Stanley's behalf, for the loan of the present work and expresses a hope that Sir George will place the Report in the Library of the British Museum.
